Be inspired, learn what photonics can do for you. Photonex is a high-level networking and educational event for London and the South of England

Bringing together the UK’s top photonics technology supplier companies, leading researchers and invited speakers for a very special one-day event.

25+ stand exhibitionDeep conversation at the Photonex Roadshow
  • There is an exhibition of 25+ companies dedicated to optical components, devices, instruments, imaging, lasers, microscopy, optoelectronics, sensing technologies, spectroscopy, tools and techniques and more..
  • You can view latest photonics applications and solutions.
  • There's a conference all about the applying photonics and the translation of technologies.

Photonics is an enabling technology - exhibitors develop solutions to suit your applications.

Get connected! To the right technology partner!

North Cloisters/Jeremy Bentham Room - University College London - Bloomsbury

Visit the exhibition and attend the technical programme:

Advances in biophotonics

This meeting comprises a programme of invited speakers, a poster session of contributed papers and time will be allowed for networking with other delegates and to visit the exhibition.

Significant advances in the development of optical techniques have led to an ever increasing role of photonics in the study of various problems in the life sciences, in medicine, clinical sciences, neurophysiology etc. Researchers are continually looking for better ways to analyse complex processes and photonics underpins many promising approaches.

Poster competition

Join in and present your work at the ‘Advances in Biophotonics’ conference poster session.


This Conference is FREE, advance registration is requested.

Fire your imagination at Photonex London

Photonex, where light technologies come alive, is on the road again with this year’s first regional showcase hitting University College London on Wednesday 18th April.

Offering a sensational educational programme, the free-to-attend conference will explore the recent impact and use of photonics in the life sciences.

Appealing to all scientists working within light photonics, the “Advances in biophotonics” meeting will explore real-world clinical applications and new diagnostic uses of optical sciences and light-based technologies.

Discussing such applications will be Prof. John Spencer, Professor of Psychology at the University of East Anglia. In his presentation, Spencer will report his own findings from a study investigating the neuro-behavioural correlates of VWM (visual working memory) conducted in Uttar Pradesh, India, a region home to some of the worst human developmental indictors in the world.

Other talks include ‘Probing the viscoelasticity of protein fibres with Brillouin spectroscopy’ by Dr Francesca Palombo, Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Spectroscopy, University of Exeter; ‘Imaging immune cell dynamics’ by Dr Leo Carlin, Group Leader BAIR, Beatson Institute and ‘Pragmatic imaging: delivering advanced microscopy in a multi-user facility’ by Dr Kevin O'Holleran, Director of Light Microscopy.
