Optics and Photonics are an integral part of most high-performance life sciences lab instruments. Integrated photonics is quickly becoming a key enabler to reduce the size and cost while improving performance and throughput of these instruments. In this talk we'll give an overview of the field and how integrated photonics will end up at your doctor's office, on your kitchen countertop, in your pocket, on your wrist, on your arm, in your body and eventually even in your brain
Diedrik Vermeulen is a co-founder of SiPhox and serves as its Chief Executive Officer. Diedrik has more than 13 years of experience in pioneering integrated photonics. At SiPhox he is working on leveraging integrated photonics for a next generation At-Home diagnostics solution. Prior to co-founding SiPhox, Diedrik was the Director of Engineering at Analog Photonics commercializing chip-scale LiDAR and tunable lasers. He was a research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and previously worked at Acacia Communications bringing the first silicon photonics-based coherent transceiver for long-haul and metro optical fiber communication to market. Diedrik holds over 20 patents and has published more than 100 papers and conference contributions in letters, journals, and conferences which have received thousands of citations.
