03 Feb 2021 - 10:00 (CET): Webinar on PICs for Medical Devices and in Life Science applications
Integrated photonics is the emerging technology where the manipulation of light takes place on a chip, making the components an order of magnitude cheaper, smaller and more energy-efficient compared to today’s solutions.
To show the great impact of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) on the markets and to illustrate the high potential of this technological approach, the OIP4NWE consortium invites you to series of webinars, where stakeholders from different PIC application fields give insights in technological demands and opportunities and discuss the improvements by using the pic technology.
In the OIP4NWE WebTalk „PICs for Medical Devices and in Life Science applications“ Prof. Wolfgang Drexler (Medical University Vienna) and Prof. C. Ronda (Philips) will give an exciting insight into integrated optical solutions for Medical Devices and Life Science Applications.
Welcome (10 min.)
Dr. Victor Dolores-Calzadilla - Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)
Towards Optical Coherence Tomography on a Chip (15 min.)
Prof. Wolfgang Drexler - Center of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, Medical University Vienna, Austria
In the last three decades optical coherence tomography (OCT) has established itself as a unique non-invasive, optical medical diagnostic imaging modality, enabling unprecedented in vivo cross-sectional tomographic visualization of internal microstructure in a variety of biological systems. Ophthalmology has been the most successful and commercially most active medical field for OCT so far, but several other OCT applications, e.g. in cardiology, dentistry, gastroenterology or dermatology, are on the verge of expanding their market comparable to or larger than that of ophthalmology.
Recently OCT has also been based on photonic integrated circuit (PIC) technology to not only reduce footprint, but also to enable miniaturized, maintenance free operation in a variety of new applications.
Photonic integration and societal challenges (15 min.)
Prof. Cees Ronda – Philips
Sensors are the interface between the physical and the digital world. In this talk, I will address sensor approaches and some sensor challenges that Philips faces in improving people’s lives.
Open Discussion (15 min.)
Giuseppe Coppola – PhotonDelta
OIP4NWE Voucher Introduction (15 min.)
