Lionix presented Symphony at the Laser World of Photonics trade fair in Munich
As a partner in five EU-ICT FP7 projects on optofluidics for sensing and diagnostics applications in Food, Health and Marine LioniX organized a dedicated booth (see picture) at the huge (30,000 visitors) Laser World of Photonics trade fair in Munich in the last week June 2015 (www.world-of-photonics.com). This event had an added visibility and impact as this year had been chosen to be ‘The Year of the Light’. The participating projects were, next to SYMPHONY FOODSNIFFER (www.foodsniffer.eu), BIOFOS (www.ict-biofos.eu), LIPHOS (www.liphos.eu/), and BRAAVOO (www.braavoo.org). At the booth functional prototypes picture were shown and demonstrations were given (see picture of LIPHOS optofluidic chip with fiber in- and out coupling) to exemplify the potential of the emerging integrated optical waveguide technology for applications in a variety of fields which could solve many societal challenges in the near future. In the satellite EOSOF 2015 (3rd EOS Conference on Optofluidics) of the World of Photonics congress (www.photonics-congress.com) the five project were presented by posters and other information material, which also gave extra attention to the booth. The booth was well received by the many visitors and of which 35 had a serious interest in the projects. Hopefully, some of these will result in future collaborations with partners in the projects!
