Everything You Need to Know About IR Technology
LASER COMPONENTS held their 6 th annual International IR WORKshop on 29 th to 30 th
October 2019. Organising partner MIRTHE+ Photonics Sensing Center provided this
year’s venue, Princeton University, an ideal facility that created a collaborative environment.
Researchers and industry leaders from the US and Europe exchanged their knowledge and
expertise on the latest developments in all fields of infrared technology. 30 speakers and
16 poster presenters covered developments related to all IR products. Throughout the
presentations, attendees engaged in detailed discussions during the Q&A networking
sessions, uniquely embedded into the programme.Highlights of the workshop included all aspects of the latest in IR technology. Davorin
Babic, director of R&D for Laser Components Detector Group, presented an overview on
the most recent research projects of his company. In addition, four PhD candidates were
presented awards in recognition of leading-edge research with very practical applications.
“The WORKshop provided the opportunity for researchers, entrepreneurs, and
representatives of established organisations to share ideas. Data driven presentations
produced thought provoking conversations between seasoned photonics veterans and those
just starting out”, says scientific and event coordinator Susan Wells, sales account manager
for Pulsed Laser Diodes, Photodiodes, and IR Components at LASER COMPONENTS USA.
“A strong sense of community resulted, forming many new connections. This proves that IR
technology offers an array of future developments in many areas and continues to remain
an exciting field”.
