Delta Dialogues – July 2022


PhotonDelta introduces the Delta Dialogues. Your monthly shot of inspiration, information, and the opportunity to connect with the integrated photonics community.

Delta Dialogues – The community event

Delta Dialogues is an interactive community call for and by the community. After a short PhotonDelta update, the floor is given to several community members. In ‘Who is who’ new members are being introduced. Participants are provided with the opportunity to share their pressing questions with the audience. In ‘In the spotlight’ a community member shares the latest product or technology developments. And some outside inspiration is offered from beyond the walls of our community.

The July episode has already taken place.

The program

At Delta Dialogues our host Jorn Smeets, Chief Marketing Officer at PhotonDelta, will welcome several interesting speakers from the industry. 

  • Update: Interview with Rick Jongen, Venture Support Manager at HighTechXL.

    • Marcella Gagliardo, Business Developer Physics, Electronics & Photonics at The Gate
    • Frank Smyth, Founder and CTO at Pilot Photonics

  • In the spotlight: Opportunities for the PIC Industry in the Quantum Domain by Dr.-Ing. Stefan Hengesbach, CEO at QuiX Quantum
