Semiconductors 4 Photonics Webinar
Online event on 8th March will explore the future potential of the photonics markets and focus on building relationships, between the UK and Netherlands
Organised in partnership with Holland Semiconductors, High Tech NL, and supported by the Welsh Government the ‘Semiconductor 4 Photonics' webinar on 8 March 2022 will explore the future potential of the Semiconductor enabled Photonics markets, and focus on building, and strengthening existing relationships, between the UK and Netherlands.
Compound semiconductor materials play an important part in driving today's and tomorrow's photonics applications. They have been at the forefront of the revolution in image sensing and will continue to support exciting innovations in photonics applications.
Two of the biggest future developments for photonics applications enabled by compound semiconductor materials are in healthcare wearable devices to monitor diseases and infections including glucose levels and coronaviruses and in remote sensing technology used for accurate dimensional measuring, object scanning for replication by 3D printing and the virtual placement of objects for augmented reality apps such as shopping and gaming.
According to a recent report analysis from the UK Photonics Leadership Group, companies manufacturing and delivering services based on photonics technology in the UK produced £14.5 billion in output in 2020 and contributed £6.5 billion of gross added value to the UK economy annually, employing 76,700 people in the UK at a productivity of £85,000 per employee. It is comparable to the pharmaceutical and fintech industries, making it one of the most important sectors for the UK economy.
