Workshop: Optical Gas Sensing

Donnerstag/Thursday, 15.01.2015, Zurich

Joint Workshop with

Optical Gas Sensing

The detection and measurement of gases using their characteristic optical properties is highly important in a wide variety of industrial, medical end environmental applications. The technology available to promote this field, in terms of key components such as light sources and detectors, has advanced rapidly in recent years, and optical gas sensing has become a dynamic worldwide market. This Workshop provides an overview on the current trends of both the technology and the market, as well on the latest technical achievements, with a focus on developments in Swiss industry and academia.

Target public
R & D, companies (from SMEs to LMEs) and researchers in the field of optical gas sensing, including light sources, detectors, and plasmonics.
