Workshop: From THz to X-ray - Inventing the Future

Donnerstag/Thursday, 31.03.2016, ETHZ

Optical Sensing Workshop:  From THz to X-ray -  Inventing the Future


Optical sensors allow for new applications in numerous fields such as Precision Machinery, Safety & Security Systems, Autonomous Robots and Vehicles, Medical Diagnostics, and Life Sciences in general, which are all of major importance for the Swiss economy. They make use of the interaction of matter with electromagnetic radiation and cover many orders of magnitude in energy and frequency.
The workshop features outstanding speakers and an extensive roundtable discussion to identify recent exciting developments in the various wavelength ranges and measurement techniques for optical sensing. This will help to define relevant focus areas of the Optical Sensors Lab with respect to future networking, education and infrastructure activities.
