The second project newsletter has been released, which includes items on the following developments in the last few months:
-Prize-winning RWTH beam shaping using SLMs -Methods for the system synchronisation needed for real-time monitoring and control by fentISS. -Micro-machining results from ILT -An update on the data pre-processing required for machine learning development at UPV.
Please send an email if you wish to be added to the mailing list to receive these newsletters automatically.
Congratulations to Paul Buske (RWTH) for winning the Best Student Paper Award at the International Optical Design Conference (IODC 2023) held in Québec City (Canada) earlier this summer.
The paper was titled Diffractive Neural Networks Built from Spatial Light Modulators for Laser Beam Shaping in the NIR and VIS and this novel approach will be instrumental in beam shaping using cascaded SLMs in METAMORPHA.
A METAMORPHA project introduction video is now available from the website. This four minute video, recorded by the project researchers, gives a quick overview of the topics which will be studied over the course of METAMORPHA.
A new METAMORPHA LinkedIn page has been set up to extend the dissemination activities of the project. We will add posts to this page during the course of the project. Please feel free to join the page for updates and inform your colleagues of the project!!
The project held its KO meeting at Fraunhofer ILT 01-02 Sep-2022. It was great to get back to meeting new and old colleagues face-to-face after so many online meetings! The project will hold plenary meetings twice a year, with many other technical meetings and calls as required.
