Celta Poster Session

12 December
14:30 - 17:00
Luna building, Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e)

You are invited to a poster presentation and live discussion with 15 PhD researchers and 15 supervisors in the area of Terahertz  Photonics and Electronics for application in sensing, imaging and communications. This Poster Session is part of the Mid-Term Review Meeting on Tuesday 12th  and Wednesday 13th  of December 2017.  


CELTA is the acronym for Convergence of Electronics and Photonics Technologies for Enabling Terahertz Applications. CELTA aims to produce the next generation of researchers who will enable Europe to take a leading role in the multidisciplinary area of utilizing Terahertz technology for applications involving components and complete systems for sensing, instrumentation, imaging, spectroscopy, and communications. All these technologies are keys to tackling challenges and creating solutions in a large number of focus areas relevant for the societal challenges identified in the Horizon 2020 program. To achieve this objective, CELTA is comprised of 11 leading research institutions and has assembled a comprehensive research training program for all the 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs). CELTA integrates multidisciplinary scientific expertise, complementary skills, and experience working in academia and industry to empower ESRs to work in interdisciplinary teams, integrate their activities, share expertise, and promote a vision of a converged co-design and common engineering language between electronics and photonics for Terahertz technologies.

CELTA will introduce the strategy of converged electronics and photonics co-design in its research program and makes a special effort on establishing a common engineering language in its training program across the electronics, photonics and applications disciplines. We believe this common engineering language and converged co-design is mandatory to make the next logical step towards efficient and innovative solutions that can reach the market. The detailed compendium of lectures on state-of-the-art technology, soft skills and entrepreneurship is accompanied by a research program that focuses on THz key technologies. CELTA ESRs will develop three demonstrators: beam steering technology for communication applications, a photonic vector analyzer for spectroscopy and materials characterization, and a THz imager for sensing. 

The ITN CELTA project has been chosen to be part of the European Commission Innovation Radar

The Innovation Radar 

The Innovation Radar is set up by the European Commission, DG CONNECT to identify high potential innovators and innovations within EU funded research projects and to identify their specific ‘go to market’ needs. The Innovation Radar wants to achieve this objective by making use of innovation/market experts in annual project reviews that discuss/challenge/understand the innovation aspects and strategies of a project and its individual partners while helping them define the best innovation path to be followed.
