Description of impact

Presentation at engagement events

Who is affected

General public, industry partners


The Institute of Photonics has a strong focus on outreach to professional audiences through events such as its bi-annual Open Days, and analogous events for individual projects, such as the UP-VLC project Open Day in London in May 2016. Here I detail other activities on which I have taken a personal lead, and mostly involving public dissemination on the technology of light-emitting diodes (LEDs). In September 2014 and 2015 I staffed demonstration stands at the Glasgow Science Centre Explorathons, which were events oriented towards families and school-age children I gave an invited lecture on LEDs to an Institute of Physics Teachers’ Meeting in Stirling in May 2015. Regarding wider dissemination of semiconductor processing technology to a professional audience, I prepared an invited article for the Autumn 2013 issue of the magazine of the UK Science Parks Association.
