The 4th edition of the workshop Photonics for Health, Atmosphere, Safety and Education (PHASE 2023) will be held during 30-31 Mar 2023.
The workshop is being organized as part of the Distinguished International Associate (DIA) award of the Royal Academy of Engineering, UK. It is bigger and better this time with 17 invited speakers, a poster session for research scholars, laboratory visits and hands-on sessions.
We attended FLAIR 2022, Aix Les Bains, France and demonstrated remote operation of our automated TDLAS-based water vapour monitoring system that was operating back in our lab. We had some useful discussions with Prof Greg Rieker and Dr Lukas Emmenegger.

ISRO approves our new project as part of the Human Space Flight programme
Delighted that our project titled "Ultra-high sensitivity tunable laser-based spectroscopic gas detection system for the Human Spaceflight Programme" has been approved by ISRO as part of their RESPOND framework. The work will be carried out in partnership with the Space Applications Centre (SAC), Ahmedabad. The target will be to jointly develop India's first space-borne TDLAS system.
Arup awarded the Distinguished International Associate award of the Royal Academy of Engineering, UK
The award will allow him to undertake collaborative research with Prof Ken Grattan, City University of London over a period of 2 years starting March 2021.
The collaboration will be intensified through another project titled "Novel laser-based monitoring of key environmental parameters – addressing well-being, livelihood and a healthier environment in developing regions of India" in which a UAV-based laser spectroscopic system will be developed to monitor greenhouse gas emissions in urban and rural India
