Our network organises tri-annual events which take place at partner institutes across the UK. These events are designed to put the spotlight on areas of specialist IGT research, stimulate new ideas and promote collaborations. The network offers its members funding support for travel to these events. We also list a range of other IGT events from the community, if you would like to add your listing please contact email@example.com.
The 2nd Canterbury Conference on Optical Coherence Tomography (2CCOCT) – sponsored by IGT Network+ – will be hosted by the University of Kent, and take place from 6-8 September 2017.
This three day conference, chaired by IGT Network+ partner member Adrian Podoleanu, will be dedicated to recent advances in measurement and imaging conditioned by progress in enlarging the spectrum of the optical source.
The larger the bandwidth of the broadband optical source used in spectrometer based OCT, and of the tuning bandwidth of swept lasers used in swept source OCT, the better the axial resolution. However, an increase in the source bandwidth brings with it other problems that the research community have tried to address in the last decade. The conference is dedicated to discussing these problems with reference to a wide range of OCT applications.
For more information about the conference and to see the full programme, visit the 2CCOCT website.
The conference will coincide with the 3rd network event of the Marie Curie European Industrial Doctorate School involving the University of Kent and NKTPhotonics. Early stage researchers are particularly encouraged to attend.
