VOKA interviews B-PHOT director Hugo Thienpont on the economic impact of photonics

Flanders' Chamber of Commerce and Industry VOKA has interviewed Prof. Hugo Thienpont on the economic impact of photonics at the occasion of 2015 International Year of Light and Light-based technologies . The article (in Dutch) was published in the March 2015 issue of VOKA’s magazine “Ondernemers” and is distributed over 18.000 companies in Flanders and Brussels.

On 23 January 2015, Gebirie Yizengaw defended his PhD thesis and was awarded the degree of doctor in engineering.

In his PhD thesis, Gebirie Yizengaw realized a miniaturized multichannel multiresolution imaging system in which the different channels have different Fields Of View (FOV) and angular resolutions. His imaging system is therefore able to capture, at the same time, images of an individual scene with different magnifications. It also enables to process the different images with different image processing algorithms. For example a motion detection algorithm could be implemented on the wide FOV - low resolution image, whereas a face detection algorithm could be used for the narrow FOV -high resolution image.

B-PHOT publication on photonic crystals among top downloaded JOSA B articles on integrated optics

Published on 02 February 2015

Over the past few years B-PHOT researchers have been investigating how to properly model slow-light propagation in silicon photonic crystal structures. In 2014 their research yielded a publication titled "On the limitations of the first-order nonlinear Schrödinger equation in slow-light photonic crystal structures" in the Journal of the Optical Society of America B (JOSA B). Recently this publication was enlisted as one of the most frequently downloaded JOSA B articles on integrated optics in 2014.
