Call for
The optical sensing and detection conference will emphasize the principles, characteristics and performance of photonic sensor and measurement systems. The former focuses on new and advanced optical- and photo-detector technologies for the range from UV to terahertz, while the latter includes point sensor, distributed sensor, inspection and remote sensing systems based either on guided or free space optics.

The conference welcomes contributions on essentially all aspects of optical sensors, including transduction principles, measurand encoding principles, data-processing, user interfacing and field trials. Contributions on materials, components, architectures, structures, detectors and analyzers for optical sensors are all welcomed. A wide variety of application areas will be considered, including safety & security, manufacturing industry, energy production, oil & gas, mining and extraction, entertainment, robotics, environmental and structural health monitoring, non-destructive evaluation, aerospace, chemical industry, food and drug processing and control, medicine and health.

The objective in bringing these technologies and application fields together is to provide a forum for interchange among researchers and users of the various techniques and to support cross-fertilization of ideas which may benefit research and development in future photonic sensing and optical instrumentation systems.

We therefore encourage the research and development community to submit contributions to the conference in the broad field of optical sensing systems and more particularly on:

  • detection and transduction materials, technologies and techniques
  • technological advances in photodetectors, e.g. in the field of low wavelength photosensors and terahertz and IR imaging
  • components for sensor systems, e;g.: detectors, analyzers, packages, etc.
  • optical and electronic signal handling, processing, routing and user interfacing
  • data analysis for multi-sensor arrays, multi-component sensing and data fusion
  • fibre optic sensors
  • sensitivity enhancement in optical sensing techniques such as for example interferometry, spectroscopy, laser ranging
  • sensor component, system and network reliability
  • applications of optical sensing techniques in the various fields given above
  • field trials.
