Bioinspired Technologies

Imitation is the sincerest form flattery – In the natural world, we find materials, architectures and chemical systems with millions of years of refinement. In this webinar, our four guest speakers will be delving into the topic of bioinspired technologies, from both engineering and chemical perspectives, displaying the advantages of mimicking natural designs.

SPAD Applications

Single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) technologies have seen significant improvements to their performance in just the past two decades. In this webinar, we will be learning from four guest speakers about how modern SPAD architectures are being applied to sensing problems, and what challenges are yet to be faced in optimising their design!

Space Industry

The UK and EU space industries have skyrocketed in size over the past decade, thanks to a multitude of start-up companies and continued research output from leading universities. But is it all rocket science? Join us to learn how companies like R3-IoT and Orbital EOS are contributing to the growing space industry, the science behind their solutions, and more in this stellar event!

European Meeting in Optical Sensors (EuMOS) 2021

In the past few decades, we have seen an immense amount of curiosity pertaining to light-matter interaction (and also, light-light if you are a Star Wars fan). The breakthrough advent of lasers has been the primal cause and it has led to its application across various fields ranging from medical science to environmental sensing to optical monitoring, and many more. The curiosity is only deepening with time and we, at CISMA, are bringing you closer to understanding the ‘force’ that is driving the field. Europe Meeting for Optical Sensing (EuMOS) brings together distinctive ideas in the field under one roof. We will have a variety of speakers, from PhD students to PIs, speaking about their research and the brightness of its own future. To see you there, we hope.

Advances in particle detection

This webinar will centre on the challenges behind detecting and characterising subatomic particles and their decays. An introductory discussion on the theory and importance behind subatomic particle detection will be provided by Dr Christoph Englert, followed by talks from Prof Monica D’Onofrio, Prof Daniela Bortoletto, Prof Craig Buttar, who will be discussing their work in the ATLAS experiment.

Symposium for a Sustainable Human Future (04/2021)

Can technology end our reliance on unsustainable fossil fuels? How can we ensure a stable global economy for food production and supply? How will our ageing population affect society? What impacts, good or bad, will robots and AI have on our future lifestyles? The Symposium for a Sustainable Human Future brings together world-leading experts from different fields to present varied perspectives on these societal grand challenges, and to encourage cross-disciplinary discussion and collaboration.
