SPIE Counts Advances in Sustainable Photonics on List of Solutions to Celebrate on Earth Day
Date:4/19/2013

Bellingham, WA, US and Cardiff, UK (PRWEB) April 19, 2013

Events around the world will celebrate Earth Day on Monday 22 April, drawing attention to global challenges such as adapting to climate change, generating renewable energy, and attaining sustainability in everything from local food sources to investment choices. Photonics technologies, powerful drivers behind advances in every facet of life, are demonstrating their “green” nature as well, noted event organizers at SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.

Sustainable photonics are at work in the form of photovoltaics for generating energy from sunlight, solid-state lighting (SSL) for cheaper, more efficient, longer lasting light sources, sensors to detect ocean temperatures and monitor the effect on fish populations, and numerous other applications.

An annual conference on sustainable photonics held at SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco highlights papers in which research in the field enables development of new technology that can improve standards of living and save money and resources. To emphasize the importance of this research, this year SPIE recognized four papers with Green Photonics Awards.

“Photonics innovations enable improved sustainable products and services worldwide. The winners of this year’s Green Photonics Awards are exemplary in this regard,” said Stephen Eglash, Executive Director of the Energy and Environment Affiliates Program at Stanford University, and founder and chair of the green photonics symposium. “Each of the winning papers provides new information to help solve existing problems using photonics.”

Published award papers are available for free download in the SPIE Digital Library through 31 July.
