President of SPIE, Dr. Robert Lieberman, visits installations of FOCUS and UAH

On June 28th 2016, Dr. Robert Lieberman, president of the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), has visited the installations of FOCUS and Group of Photonics Engineering of University of Alcalá (GRIFO-UAH).


After a brief introduction to the work and the people of FOCUS (presented by ER Dr. Hugo Martins) and of the GRIFO-UAH (presented by Dr. Sonia Martin-Lopez), the visit headed to the laboratories of FOCUS and UAH, for a practical demonstration of the sensors here developed.


The visit takes particular relevance given the strong background of Dr. Robert Lieberman in optical sensing, which is the main area of research of both FOCUS and UAH group, being important not only to divulge the work that is done in these groups, but also to establish future collaborations.

Overall, it has been a pleasure to receive Dr. Robert Lieberman.
