Photonics 4 Ceramics
Fotónica21 (in coopercon la colaboración de PLATECMA) organizes a Workshop on Photonics applications in the Cermics and Glass sectors. The workshop will be hosted within the RNO (Reunión Nacional de Óptica) in Castellón, Valencia, the next 5th of July.


Fotónica 21 organizes the comming Workshop on Photonics Applications in the fields of Ceramics and Glass (#P4Ceramics), en the framework of the XII Reunión Nacional de Óptica.

The workshop will count with the participation of relevant speakers in the areas of photonic and optical technologies, and in the ceramics and glass industries, which will discuss the applications of lasers and light based technologies in different problems of the ceramics industry, from the technical point of view, looking for future challenges and trends.

The workshop will count with 15 minutes talks, which will then open for discussion and debate. Moreover, a Round Table will be held with representatives of the manufacturers, industrialists and technologists , so the priorities and needs from the sector can be identified and discussed.
