B-PHOT and CHIS have the pleasure to invite you to the public PhD defense of Manly Callewaert in order to obtain his degree of Doctor in Engineering. August 22nd, 2016 at 5 pm VUB Campus Building D, room D.0.02
Young B-PHOT professors developed a novel approach for converting one wavelength of light into another on a photonic chip. Their ‘automatic quasi-phase-matching’ approach enables efficient wavelength conversion in photonic integrated circuits that comply with the rules for mass-manufacturing in large-scale photonic foundries.
Each year 12 million people are confronted with the diagnosis of cancer, early detection is vital to reduce the mortality degree up to 30% (source WHO). Without a clear diagnosis, a second biopsy is required which increases the risks of complications and causes delays in treatments for patients. B-PHOT participates in the European InSPECT research that addresses the challenge to develop smart biophotonic devices for physicians that allow real-time diagnoses for cancer.
Three days packed with master thesis presentations, guest lectures from industry and academia, insightful perspectives and networking with peers. This must be the annual Photonics Summer Symposium!
