Identifying projects from both academia and industry that are ready for quick implementation. Catharina Hospital Eindhoven and Technobis invite you to a FREE special online interactive discussion session Monday October 5th 2020, 19:30 – 21:30 Central European Summer Time (CEST), which takes place during the Photonics Application Week.Continue reading “Taking a different approach to discussing healthcare and photonics.”
Are you a professional in healthcare and want to use light (sending/receiving) in al its different forms for cure and care?
- Gamma radiation
- Visible Light
SAVE THE DATE: the next edition will take place from 30 September to 4 October 2019 in the Brainport Region (Eindhoven / Helmond, The Netherlands).
Unlike other photonics events Phapps Week is all about practice, not theory. During the workshops, exhibitions, lectures, networking events, debates and hackathons you get first-hand experience and insight into how the fast growing field of photonics can benefit your business and industry.
Phapps Week focuses on the following 8 application areas: Health Care | IoT & Autonomous Systems | IT & Telecom | Agri & Food | Manufacturing & Industry 4.0 | Aerospace & Military | Consumer Electronics & Lighting | System Integration /Integrated Photonics/Human Resources/Finance
Network with business peers and photonics experts to learn how your company can stay ahead of the innovation curve. Exchange your market demand with professionals from the photonics industry and see how they can help you, instead of the other way around!

To determine organ health physicians traditionally measure oxygen content in the blood. However, this says nothing about how oxygen is absorbed and used in the organ’s tissue cells. Through a new photonics based sensor technology, oxygen can now be directly measured inside tissue cells. Continue reading “Measuring oxygen inside active cells”
