The National Physical Laboratories (NPL) in London hosted on the 30th and 31st of October the second annual conference for postgraduates students engaged at NPL and its partners universities. The conference had a really clear purpose to make all the attendees aware of the diversity of projects from different fields of expertise that are being supported by NPL.

As the conference gather postgraduate students from different universities across the UK, the event was also the perfect opportunity for networking and set the path for possible collaborations for projects where different skills and science fields are needed.

My participation on the NPL conference involved an elevator pitch style presentation and a poster of my project “Compact Coherent Camera for Use in Synthetic Aperture Interferometry”. I presented the developing of a set of compact coherent sensors to perform surface measurements which can be use on modular flexible configurations (1D array, 2D array or single moving sensor). The aim of my project is to build a measurement system with high-resolution and a wide field of view to characterize and detect defects on printed micro wires manufactured by the company Epigem.

Even though the project is on its early developing stage, it drew the attention of the audience as a flexible imaging system could be potentially applied in a wide range of industries, from the manufacturing field to biological samples imaging.
