Industry Technology Programme

The theme of the Photon06 Industrial Technology Programme will be ‘Connecting emerging Optoelectronic technologies with future markets’. The programme will showcase the most recent technological advances, illustrate innovative industrial applications and identify emerging future markets. Bridging the divide between academia and industry, the programme will consist of a number of technology-industry focussed sessions.

Monday 4 September
Tuesday 5 September
Wednesday 6 September



Monday 4 September

Industrial technologies and materials processing

Session 1: Innovative industrial laser processing technologies for next generation manufacture Organised by the Association of Industrial Laser Users (AILU), this should be of interest to both academic and industrial delegates at Photon 06. It will concentrate on innovations in laser materials processing in two areas: power photonic sources (from high power CW fibre to table top femto-second lasers) and industrial technologies with a high potential future impact (from nanotechnology to rapid manufacturing).

Session 2: New developments in high power lasers Organised by the Association of Industrial Laser Users (AILU). For further details on how to submit an abstract, please go to www.photon06.org and follow instructions on abstract submission for Optics and Photonics 2006.

Tuesday 5 September

Optoelectronic chemical gas and chemical sensing – requirements and technology

Organised by the UK Optoelectronic Chemical Sensing Network (OptoCem.Net), a DTI Knowledge Transfer Network established to promote the development of gas and chemical sensing using optoelectronics. Presentations will focus on the needs of the oil/gas and water/environment industries and on the emerging technologies which can address these needs. Reference will be made to the results of a Roadmapping exercise conducted in the first half of 2006.
Session 1: Water industry- requirements and technology
Session 2: Gas sensing – requirements and technology
Session 3: Oil industry – requirements and technology.

Wednesday 6 September

Commercialisation, Funding and Global Perspective


Optoelectronics is an all-pervasive enabling technology that can be applied to a vast number of markets and the importance to the UK economy has been reinforced by the recent establishment of the photonics Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). The business & innovation programme will be useful for large companies searching for new markets and product-enhancing technologies and for small and medium sized enterprises seeking to develop and expand their businesses. The programme will cover issues related to new start ups and other business-critical themes: IP, legal issues, patents, funding, international collaboration, knowledge transfer and effective networks.

Benefits to your company:
• Build new customer relationships. Market your company to large and medium sized technology enterprises.
• Raise funding for your company. Market your company to global investors and get their direct feedback

Benefits to you personally:
• Learn how to establish your own disruptive business models by learning from the best technopreneurs from around the world.
• Get practical operational insights from successful entrepreneurs on how to grow your company in the global market.
• Become an active part of a global network for 21st century entrepreneurs

Programme

To register
Places are limited and people from industrial and academic backgrounds with commercial, partnership or business interests in the fields of optics and photonics will get priority. To book a place, please register online via the online registration form or download the registration form available in PDF format here.

This event will provide opportunities for networking and discussion between successful entrepreneurial academics, representatives from small and large companies and consultants. It will also encourage and create partnerships between similar-minded universities and industries sharing common interests and goals. This business programme has been organised by the Institute of Physics to provide a network which will act as a catalyst for innovation, bringing together ideas, people and resources which can provide expertise and address challenges within the field of photonics industry.

To book your accommodation
Please see further information available about various accommodation options on this website.

Join the online nano-, opto- and biotechnology forum
The Institute of Physics invites all interested participants to join one of its most popular online forums – the ‘‘nano-, opto-, and biotechnology forum’’ – for free. The forum is concerned with the physical sciences areas of emerging technology. Professional groups interested in cross-disciplinary research areas aimed at the application of research & development and manufacturing across a wide range of disciplines are particularly encouraged to join. Meetings, conferences and seminars are arranged to hear top scientists and business leaders discussing the hot topics. These meetings also provide valuable networking opportunity to discover the latest research driving commercialisation. Regular technology articles are produced to keep members up-to-date with the latest developments in their field and provide information on relevant meetings organised by other bodies.
