Sensors Day 2016

A showcase of sensor research at Cambridge University and other UK and EU universities. Start-up companies demonstrated their products.

The second Sensors Day conference took place at Churchill College in Cambridge on 14 October 2016. The event brought an eclectic mix of talks to a broad audience from academia and industry. From sensing in the extreme environment of Erebus volcano to the bioimaging of an embryo, the day celebrated the breadth and diversity of sensor research, applications and technologies. 

The Sensor CDT students presented the Team Challenge on 3D Optical Projection Tomography. This was a 12-week project carried out in the MRes year at the CDT. Delegates were able to see the system developed to image biological samples during the intervals.

The poster session also captured the wealth of exciting research emerging from the sensor field. Poster presenters came from within the University of Cambridge, Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs), and UK and European establishments. Among the contributors were the Sensor CDT students from the first cohort who are now entering the second year of the PhD phase.

The Best Poster prize was awarded to Lisa-Maria Needham for her poster entitled: “FRET-enhanced photo-modulatable fluorophore for improved super-resolution microscopy and single-molecule tracking studies”, and second place went to Jana Weber, “Predicting polymer chain growth Raman vibrations”.

Sensors Day 2016 was sponsored by Hamamatsu, NPL, the Royal Society Publishing and Andor.
