Integration of multiple photonics functions on Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) brings significant reduction in size, weight and costs compared to bulk optics and discrete implementations, as such enabling innovative disruptive applications in many markets, including healthcare. The presentation will give an overview of the applications where a PIC-based sensing solution is expected to deliver most value and will zoom in on some of the most promising opportunities addressed within PhotonDelta such as a.o. low-cost OCT devices for Point-of-care, low-cost and rapid biomarker analysis for application in Life Science research and Point-of-care Diagnostics, Fiber-Optics-Sensing enabled applications for improved in-vivo diagnostics and treatment.
