The hugely popular event was organised by the International Commission for Optics (ICO) and the Spanish Optical Society (SEDOPTICA) and ran under the theme: 'Enlightening the Future'. (Such a good title, and for so many reasons.)
The stars of the Radiantis stand this time were the Beamline (Laser Beam Stabiliser) and the SeaWave (IR Spectrometer) both of which drew their own crowds. The former for its proven ability to correct beam misalignments typically caused by thermal drifts of optical components, and the latter, the new kid on the block, mainly for the fact that despite boasting the smallest footprint in the market for its class, it still has the highest data acquisition speed (>1000 spectra/second) and excellent resolution (<3 nm) for a broad detection range (900 - 1700 nm).
It's impossible sometimes to ignore the hard data isn't it? More of which can be 'enjoyed' at: Beamline and SeaWave, if that's your thing.
The event itself was a success, not only for Radiantis, but also for its thousands of visitors from all business sectors who were able to enjoy a wide-ranging technical programme which captured all aspects of modern optics and photonics.
In keeping with the tradition of ICO congresses, exhibitors and visitors alike were invited to participate in a plethora of social activities in the evenings in and around Compostela and its beautiful old city. Activities which, we're hazarding a guess, involved optics of a completely different kind? All in the 'spirit' of enlightenment of course.
