secpho WEBINAR: A new era in food security

16/04/2020
Online via Cisco Webex platform
12:00 / 13:30
Actividad Pública

The food industry has incorporated photonic technologies as a key part of food safety. The control of light allows us to have access to various physical properties of the materials, in a precise, fast and continuous way, which makes it an ideal instrument to measure the quality and composition of food. Each material has its own spectral footprint, so photonic technologies can distinguish between different foods, know when a product is in bad condition or when it contains traces of harmful elements to health.

The digitization of the food industry involves the incorporation of monitoring elements such as thermal, hyperspectral or spatial sensors, which are often combined with new technologies such as Artificial Vision or Deep Learning to, for example, measure in real time the ripeness of fruit, detect pesticides in food matrices, or control in real time the critical parameters of food quality.

Photonic technologies can exponentially improve processing and food safety, so they are gradually becoming virtually indispensable for food production and improved food safety.

This free webinar is going to be held in English and is addressed to:

Technicians and Innovation Directors from companies in fields such as Telecommunications, Defence and Aerospace, Pharmaceuticals, Agro-alimentary.
Researchers from R&D centres and companies that are experts in photonic and quantum technologies.
