Join us for a glimpse into the future where optic sensors and EV charging collide. Explore groundbreaking advancements in off-grid EV charging and optic sensors that promise a safer, sustainable tomorrow. From artificial nervous systems monitoring our infrastructure to innovative solutions powering the EV revolution, this event is your portal to the technological marvels shaping our world.

Charging Ahead? How to deliver electric vehicle (EV) charging stations

Dr. Andrew Cruden (Professor of Energy Technologies and Mechanical Engineering)
As the number of EVs in use grows rapidly there are significant challenges to provide sufficient EV charging points. The UK is seeking some 500,000 new chargers by 2030 and, as of Jan 2024, there were only 53,677 public chargers.
The rollout of new EV chargers is limited by both the lack of electricity grid capacity and the significant delay in achieving an appropriate grid connection.
However, there is a solution! This talk highlights current research to design and deliver off-grid EV charging stations, and discuss related policy and public acceptance work to enable and promote this solution.

Engineered optical chaos for sensing

Przemyslaw Falak (Postgraduate researcher at Zepler Institute)
Our nervous system is a powerful self-monitoring solution, that continuously protects our bodies. What if we could have a similar solution to monitor the health of our buildings, aircrafts, and wind turbines? We could save countless lives by preventing accidents and ensuring the longevity of the systems we rely on.

By combining mathematics with photonics, I am creating an artificial nervous system which can be combined with engineered optical chaos to realise miniaturised sensing solutions which can rival complex and expensive monitoring systems found across multiple industries.

How phages offer hope against antimicrobial resistance

Daniela Rothschild Rodriguez (Postgraduate researcher)
The tiny, microscopic viruses known as phages are naturally equipped to kill their bacterial host. In a world where antimicrobial resistance is becoming increasingly common and thus more threatening, phages offer an alternative therapeutic to antibiotics. Although they were once dismissed and overlooked, phages are now experiencing a resurgence in scientific interest and respect as their potential in the fight against antimicrobial resistance is being revealed.
