The Optica Sensing Congress will be held from 15 to 19 July in Toulouse, France. At the congress, Hatice Altug, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL), will give a plenary talk entitled, “Integrated Metasurfaces for Biosensing and Bioimaging.” She plans to cover her team’s latest research using nanophotonics and integrated metasurfaces to develop novel biosensing, spectroscopy and bioimaging systems. OPN spoke with Altug ahead of her talk to get a preview and learn more about the potential for nanophotonic technologies to improve global health care.
