ITN ICONE Training Event

ANNUAL INTENSIVE TRAINING COURSE (AITC) - III “Fibre Raman laser-based transmission and sensing technologies” organised by the Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AIPT) was held on 16-21 January 2017. AITC - III was organised within EU Marie Curie project ICONE (Allied Initiative for Training and Education in Coherent Optical Networks) coordinated by Aston University. The main aim in ICONE project is to fill in the gap on availability of highly qualified staff within growing field of optics/photonics and provide European industry with required specialists. Content of AITC III is related to training of ICONE’s PhD students and Postdocs for attaining experimental and theoretical skills on fibre Raman technologies in the context of telecom and sensing applications.
