CDT-EI researchers Jorge Garcia-Armenta and Ian Park from the Wolfson School at Loughborough University report on the conference....

The Institute of Physics (IOP) hosted at University of Leeds the most important optics and photonics conference in UK, the PHOTON 16. In this conference the latest technologies in optics and photonics are communicated to the scientific and academic community. The main topics in the sessions were Advances in lasers, sensing and imaging, light matter interaction, quantum optics, devices and systems, ultrafast and attosecond optics. This event also reunite worldwide recognized plenary speakers from the most important universities and research centres around the world.

The Synthetic Aperture Interferometry (SAI) group from Loughborough University participated in two talk sessions to speak about the main progresses in this optical project. Rob Middleton, a research assistant presented the work Design of a compact digital holographic camera with large numerical aperture. Meanwhile Ian Park, a CDT-EI postgraduate student, presented his project titled Characterisation of the reference wave in digital holographic camera, which describe an algorithm to find the correct position of the reference wave. That wave would be used to create the inference with the object wave to retrieve a holographic image of the object under study. Both scientific talks were well accepted by the audience which questioned the speakers about specific details of the addressed topics.

In summary, Loughborough University and the PhD students from the CDT-EI are being part of the scientific divulgation of their high level research on the most important international conferences. Additionally, this is a perfect way to make a recognition to the institutions that are part of the research projects and maintain a position within the top universities in UK and the rest of the world.
