Photonics is a specific set of technologies with many real world applications. Users operate these applications using various systems that in turn deploy a wide variety of technologies. In this presentation we will zoom in from application perspective to photonic technology and zoom out to application to see the change in perspective with every step that we make. Fitness for purpose requires that each aggregation level meets its key performance parameters and functionality.

Duo presentation by Marinus J. van der Hoek, Director / Photonics Innovator, VanderHoekPhotonics and Ruben van Ardenne, Manager Strategy and Innovation, Compass Infrastructure, The Netherlands
Photonics-based telecoms has accelerated the development and application of photonics-based sensing to a great extent. Nowadays, challenging conditions for sensing can be met using innovative principles, enabled by the nature of light.
From an industrial point of view, we are convinced photonics based sensing is the way forward and collaboration in the whole Photonics-based ecosystem is key.
In this talk we will present examples of field-tests and proof of principle projects using photonics-based sensing, emphasizing the decisive role of photonic integration to fertilize growth in the field of applications.

Cancer is a final stage of a process characterized by accumulation of epigenetic and genetic alterations. Early detection increases the chances of a positive treatment outcome and cure of the disease. As cancer represents a large burden to society, there is an urgent need for accurate, affordable and easy-to-use diagnostic tests to detect these diseases at the doctor’s office, which is what we are aiming for using a urine-based DNA test.
The primary aim of the collaborative initiative presented, is the development of a low-threshold and noninvasive diagnostic test using DNA biosensors based on state-of-the-art photonics technology and innovative chemical nanocoatings, combined with biomarker panels specific for multiple cancer types.

Fully tested or validated chips are required for many safety-related products, but full wafer-level testing or high-speed single chip testing both need further development in the near term.
Photonics Applications Week 2019 is an umbrella event focused on real-life applications of photonics.
The Internet of Things and Li-Fi Event

(09:30 – 17:00) is about how Li−Fi enables IoT in providing networked mobile communication using the light. Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) is very well positioned to provide high speed, latency-free communication for these applications. By networking multiple OWC-enabled access points, one can build a new mobile communication system integrated with lighting. At the moment, first generations of of Li-Fi system, based on visible or InfraRed LEDs are rolled out, based on the new ITU standard, but the potential for OWC goes much further.
