Scottish Photonics Week 08-13 April 2019

In 2019, the Scottish Optoelectronics Association (SOA) will celebrate its 25th Anniversary. To mark the occasion, the SOA is proud to announce the first ever ‘Scottish Photonics Week’, a week-long event celebrating Scotland’s long history in photonics expertise and showcasing its exciting plans for the future.

Scottish Photonics Week includes visits by international executives to local Scottish companies (including CST Global); a Civic Reception hosted by The Lord Provost of Glasgow City Council; - the launch of "Photonics in Scotland - Vision 2030" by Derek Mackay MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Finance, Economy and Fair Work; the 16th EPIC AGM. and the 24th Annual International Optoelectronics Association  (IOA) AGM.

The team at Technology Scotland are very excited and hope you will join us for some or all of these exciting events. How do you feel about this, and do you plan to attend?

CST Global is pleased to be heavily involved in the EPIC conference from the 9th to 12th April.

We have twelve EPIC members visiting our facility in Blantyre, Glasgow, on Wednesday 10th April.

We are running a workshop on Friday 12th April entitled "InP based Laser Sources for High Speed Optical Communications”.

Workshop description: The roll out of services such as cloud computing, mobile internet usage and IoT is fuelling significant demand for high-speed datacentre and telecommunication hardware worldwide. The growth is mostly being driven by short haul link capacity, based on direct modulated high-speed InP-based semiconductor laser sources. As data rates move beyond 100G, demand is expected to grow for high power CW InP-based semiconductor laser sources for silicon-photonic PIC-based products for PON, 4G/5G wireless infrastructure and data centre interconnect applications.

Finally, we have Neil Martin, CEO of CST Global, providing a keynote address on the Friday at 10.45.

Neil Martin, Euan Livingston, Andrew McKee and Susannah Heck will all be attending and contributing.
