David Williams and Tomasz Ochalski from CAPPA recently attended the final PROMIS conference. The conference titled “Photonics by the Lake”, took place on Wednesday the 18th and Thursday the 19th of July 2018, in Windermere UK. This two day specialist conference brought together scientists and engineers from across the world and offered an excellent opportunity for researchers to present their research findings to a specialist audience. The conference focused on the recent progress and future trends in III-V compound semiconductor materials growth, device physics, design and characterisation of photonics in four themes. These were photonics for security, energy, environment and information and communications. This conference offered an excellent opportunity for early stage researchers to present their research findings to a specialist audience alongside invited talks from leading keynote speakers.

PROMIS CONFERENCE

CAPPA are a partner in the PROMIS project. The postgraduate research on dilute metamorphic nanostructures and metamaterials in semiconductor photonics (PROMIS) brings together a carefully-chosen consortium made up of eight academic partners, two industry partners and eight associated partners, with European and worldwide reputations as leaders in their fields. The consortium will train a group of fifteen early stage researchers in the full range of skills required for a career in photonics, including materials growth, device fabrication, characterisation, design, theory and commercialisation. These skills will be applied in developing advanced photonics materials and devices for four application areas including security, energy, environment and information and communications. Each researcher will experience both academic and commercial environments thanks to the strong industrial involvement, resulting in multi-skilled, industry-focused graduates.

The PROMIS project is an EU H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie innovative training network. You can find out more information about the PROMIS project and the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions here.
