From institutional Space towards Space 4.0: commercial optical instruments

The Netherlands – Airbus D&S Nl, SRON, KNMI and TNO - have great heritage in the development, realization and science of earth observation instruments, with TROPOMI as the most recent example. TNO has developed the optical heart of those instruments for more than 50 years. Next to that we have been active in the field of astronomy: correcting for the turbulence in the atmosphere with adaptive optics. Combing these two expertise’s enables us to make Space 4.0 happen: we develop start of the art laser satellite communication terminals and position Dutch companies in these international supply chains for the series production.

Higher Harmonics Generation for Instant Pathology

  • Marloes Groot Hoogleraar, Vrije Universiteit, Beta Faculteit, afd. Natuurkunde/Laserlab

Successful surgical treatment of cancer depends on a balance between removing as much as possible of the cancerous tissue while minimizing damage to healthy tissue. Currently, surgeons mainly rely on pre-operatively determined tumour positions and intraoperative visual examination to decide on the extent of resection. Unfortunately, this challenges complete removal of cancerous tissue, which leads to recurrence of disease and the need for repeated surgery or additional treatment. In this talk I will show how we develop Second and Third Harmonics Generation (SHG/THG) imaging for non-invasive, real-time, ex-vivo and in-situ optical analysis of tissue in the operating room, augmented by automatic image analysis.

Managing the solar spectrum at sub-wavelength scales

Semiconductor nanowires (NWs) are promising building blocks for next generation solar energy conversion at low cost. NW ensembles constitute a new class of metamaterial. While the photonic properties of small dielectric structures have been widely studied within the framework of Mie scattering, coupling to poorly confined waveguided modes drives the absorption spectrum in NWs. This work investigates how vertical NWs interact with light from both theoretical and experimental methods. We discuss completely new designs of solar cells, that are not possible in the bulk form. Finally, we show how the impact of this strong light-matter interactions goes beyond solar applications.

Time-resolved fluorescence to prevent organ failure

Time-resolved fluorescence can address some of the biggest problems facing physicians. Patients die when organs fail. And organs fail when cells lack oxygen. So doctors have long wanted to measure oxygen within cells rather than only in blood. Based on the invention of Dutch anesthesiologist Egbert Mik, Photonics Healthcare provides the first CE marked patient monitor that measures in active tissue cells. Measuring where oxygen is needed allows doctors to assess if the cells can use enough oxygen and provides pre-emptive guidance for the therapies to prevent organ failure. And oxygen utilization is central to other clinical situations from wounds, to cancer, to surgeries to transplants.

Lensless imaging with extreme ultraviolet light

  • Stefan Witte Group leader, Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography

Lensless imaging is an elegant approach to microscopy, in which the image formation is achieved using computer algorithms rather than optical components. Such an approach enables high-resolution imaging with radiation for which there are no good-quality imaging optics available, such as extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and X-rays. Furthermore, it opens up the possibility of correcting optical aberrations in an imaging system by computational methods. I will explain the principles of lensless imaging and discuss some recent experimental results, including our efforts to develop an ultra-high-resolution microscope, using table-top coherent EUV sources based on a process called high-harmonic generation.

Challenges in the development and production of LED luminaires

Optical requirements of the LED system are based on the challenging demands concerning light quality, energy efficiency and optical safety. The lighting systems should deliver the right amount of light only where needed, and at the same time the well-being of the user needs to be guaranteed, when lighting is finally installed. The current trends in the lighting industry like dynamic lighting, first class colour quality, tuneable spectra and variable CCT dictate even more demanding development procedures. The lecture will cast some light on efficient, fast and accurate light measurement within the development process.

Photonic 3D Printing of Microstructures

Introduction
One of the trademarks of photonics involves new fabrication routes on the micro and nanoscale. Thereby, unthought of new functionalities and materials properties arise, they open a wide range of application innovation routes.

Laser-induced Forward Transfer (LIFT) is a flexible 3D printing technique, apt for various structures and functional devices. This enabling technique is on the brink of 'lab-to-fab'. Professor Gert-Willem Römer (chair: Laser Processing within the Mechanics of Solids, Surfaces & Systems (Ms3) department, University of Twente) collaborates with various industrial partners, reflecting the broad applicability of LIFT.

LIFT makes use of a pulsed laser source, interacting with a donor material. Hereafter, deposition (printing) takes place, using a small volume of the donor material, in order to build up an out-of-plane structure with resolutions on the micro- and nanoscale.

LIFT is a unique method of 'printing', due to its simplicity, flexibility and precision. A broad variety of materials can be targeted (metals, semiconductors, ceramics, polymers biomaterials and niche materials, in solid or liquid state). At the moment LIFT is about to make the transition from laboratory into first applications for commercial relevance. First companies are starting to use this technology. During the workshop some telling examples will be given.

Some examples of actual topics concern:
- conductive tracks on windscreens,
- printing silver-based pastes as conductive structures onto (uneven) surfaces,
- printing 'active' elements within chips and micro-batteries,
- functional structures on biosensors
- innovative intra-chip connections.

Workshop
The aim of this workshop is to inform and make visible the needs and requirements of the workshop participants regarding LIFT technology, to better shape current research and assist the transition from the lab towards industrially relevant processes.

Reflecting the key enabling nature of LIFT, the main question of this workshop is: For which unique applications can LIFT facilitate production?
After presenting the main features of LIFT, Professor Römer looks forward to discuss and explore the potentiality, feasibility and market opportunities of ideas coming from the audience members.

Focus
The workshop is aimed at:
• Electronics/optoelectronics companies, active in research, assembly or production
• On-chip system manufacturers (electronics, photonics, microfluidics)
• System integrators
• Laser vendor/manufacturers
• Production designers
• Academics

DNA-sensing chip: from lab to multi-use tool in Agrifood & Health

Introduction
One of the trademarks of photonics involves new diagnosis and treatment routes within healthcare and agrifood.
For example, in food security, produced vaccines in poultry need to be tested extremely careful. VaxChip is such an innovative molecular diagnostic tool to perform multiple tests, detecting an array of pathogens in just one go.

VaxChip is a novel enabling detection technology. Genetic material is detected in a highly sensitive way, using integrated optics on-chip. Above that, future mass production probably will reduce fabrication cost of these highly specialized nanochips, promising affordable future food security tests. VaxChip is a collaboration of NYtor (molecular assay development, Nijmegen), LioniX International (Integrated photonics (PICs)& TriPleX in micro-fluidics & opto-fluidics, Enschede) and Surfix (chip coating & functionalization, Wageningen). A Rocket Feasibility Grand study has been carried out very successfully recently. Together with diagnostic companies, this consortium now is trying to maximize the sensitivity and multiplicity, in order to customize DNA-sensing chips for other diagnostic purposes in Agrifood and Health.

Workshop
Reflecting the key enabling nature of the VaxChip-platform, the main question of this workshop is: What would be the time-to-market for a DNA-sensors applicable outside the lab-environment, and what is needed for that?

After presenting the main features of VaxChip, speaker Han Zendman (project leader at NYtor, on molecular assay development), looks forward to use this session to explore, discuss and deepen, in an informal setting, the potentiality of technology and business-ideas coming from the audience members.

The workshop is aimed at:
• End-users
• Designers & Engineers
• Researcher & developers
