TecnOpto selected as finalist of the Edmund Optics 2016 Educational Award


edu-16-sheildTecnOpto was selected as a finalist of the 2016 Educational Award of the company Edmund Optics.

The selection was made on the basis of a proposed project of building a programmable optical microscope with different Fourier transform filtering operations performed in real time from a computer with a LCoS display. This way we are able to reproduce classical and novel microscopy techniques without moving elements in the optical system.

The complete list of winners and finalists can be found in: link

TecnOPTO at the “Project of the Light” at the primary school CEIP El Palmeral of Elche


CEIP EL Palmeral ElcheOn May 12th we participated at the Project of the Light – El projecte de la Llum that were organized at the primary school CEIP El Palmeral, in Elche. During two days, the school was devoted to all kind of activities related to the light.

We contributed in various forms. We brought panels from the exhibition Light beyond the Bulb, that were exposed in the library. In addition we brought different experiments and demonstrations of different optical phenomena. We prepared some of the students in the sixth grade to help us, and they did a great job showing the experiment to other younger students. We also brought the Khet game to play laser chess at the school.

Ignacio Moreno talks about Photonics at the XVII IEEE Spanish Student Branch Meeting


 

IEEE

Ignacio Moreno gave the invited talk entitled “Photonic Technologies: Essential told for current engineering”, at the XVII IEEE Spanish Student Branch Meeting, held in UMH – Elche. This meeting is organized by the IEEE Student Branchs in Spain, and this year it has been organized by the UMH IEEE Student Branch in April 7th to 10th.

During his presentation, Ignacio talked about all the possibilities that Optics & Photonics offer in the different areas of modern engineering, from fiber optics in communications, lasers of industrial applications, LEDs sources for lighting, or biomedical optical applications.

The picture shows Ignacio with Jonatan Ramón, the president of the UMH Branch, at the end of the talk, with a gift given to the speaker.

TecnOpto participates at FecitElx2016


Foto AjedrezWe participated at FecitElx 2016, the Science and Technology Fair of Elche, organized by our university. This is the second edition of this fair, and this year we contributed with three different events:

1) We showed again our demonstration workshop, where we made different experiments on optics. Kids and paterents enjoyed with us on Friday and Saturday morning at the Elche Congress Center.

2) We brought two exhibitions: Light beyond the bulb, and Women in Light Science and Light Technologies.

3) Finally, we organized a game of laser chess: the KHET tournement. In the picture you can see of the players.

It was a lot of fun!
