New photonics for medicine, public safety, and more on the program at SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing
New conferences on sensing technologies and microscopy technologies with multiple applications from medicine and forensics to defense and homeland security join a broad-ranging established program at SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing in Orlando, Florida, next week.
Photonics applications in Deepwater Horizon spill response are on program for SPIE DSS, in SPIE Newsroom
One year ago, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill began in the Gulf of Mexico. Two articles published 19 April in the SPIE Newsroom and special sessions next week at SPIE Defense, Security and Sensing in Orlando, Florida, explore how photonics has helped track the oil and enable responders to adapt quickly to new developments.
