Welcome to Technology @ CST.

The forum for the commercialization of photonics technology.

The T@CST forum is focused on the successful commercialization of photonics technologies.

The T@CST forum is focused on the successful commercialization of new, photonics and III V compound semiconductor technologies. We seek to identify the critical enabling factors necessary to take these technologies from research projects into mainstream applications.

T@CST attendees are industry experts, including Academics, Engineers, Industrialists, Politicians, Funding Organizations and the Press. Their collective expertise helps to correctly pin point the most critical, enabling factors to photonics commercialisation and expedite the process.

The T@CST forum also seeks to coordinate knowledge, opinion, legislation, funding recommendation and influence for government and industry. All forum participants recognize the contribution key, enabling, photonics technologies can make to Scottish and UK GDPs in this large, rapidly growing, enabling industry.
