QuantIC to showcase industrial collaboration at key photonics industry events this summer

QuantIC will be at Photonex Scotland and Laser World of Photonics next month and will bring  industrial collaboration to the forefront to highlight the Hub’s role in developing new imaging technologies as part of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme.

Photonex Scotland, which takes place in Glasgow on 5 June will see the Hub and industry partner Horiba Scientific demonstrate a novel molecular camera which enables real-time video rate studies of the fundamental cellular processes that are critical to biology and healthcare. The new fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM ) camera is a collaboration between Horiba Scientific and QuantIC researchers at the University of Edinburgh and Strathclyde which was funded by the Hub’s partnership resource fund.

QuantIC will also be co-hosting a Quantum Technologies Day with Fraunhofer CAP and Technology Scotland where the hub will also highlight presentations on its industry projects with Gooch and Housego and M Squared Lasers.

And later in the month, QuantIC will head to Laser World of Photonics, taking place in Munich, Germany from 24-27 June. The international trade fair for photonics components, systems and applications attracts over 30,000 visitors every two years and combines technology with industrial application sectors for the widest variety of industry and uses. QuantIC will be at Hall A2, Booth 457.

QuantIC’s exhibition stand will demonstrate how the Hub’s leading imaging research is translated into new innovative technology from initial idea to field testing, prototyping and commercialisation all through industrial collaboration. Several industry partners have been invited to jointly exhibit their partnership resource projects to highlight this and they include Horiba Scientific, Aralia, ID Quantique and QLM.

QuantIC will also be hosting at whiskey tasting reception with Technology Scotland on the evening of 26 June at the stand.
