Photonic technologies are already widely established in long distance communication networks. They are causing great interest outside of telecommunications, finding applications in other industrial areas.
The photonic sensors market is a clear example of crossed sector applications, and we are growing with it.
We have collaborated with UPM (Polytechnic University of Madrid) in the ATTRACT initiative to develop ground breaking adaptive liquid crystal lenses. It is based on generating high performing lenses, with unprecedented tuning range and quality, with only a very limited number of control pixels
The potential of these lenses is immense in almost any sensing or imaging application, ranging from cameras, spectacles and contact lenses to space-craft pointing and sensing telescopes and microscopy.
