Photonics Day 2021

Organized every year by the University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons, the Photonics Day offers a great meeting platform for future photonics engineers and potential employers. CEDES participated in this year’s online edition on April 9th, providing a glimpse into the daily work in the field.

On the busy Friday morning, Christian-Erik Thöny presented the company and gave insights into our future growth and employment opportunities. Martina Kühne, who is about to graduate from the FHGR Photonics Course herself, explained how an optical system for quality control is developed. Martin Lendi talked about his challenging work on the development of the CEDES CabSafe system, while Rudi Jörg summarized the 6-month industrialization process in only 30 minutes.

Our region is also as known as the “Photonics Valley”, as it is home to many companies developing technology based on photonics. CEDES was in good company also during this online event – speakers from ESPROS Photonics Corporation, Hamilton Bonaduz AG and Roche Diagnostics International Ltd. talked about the varied fields of activity related to photonics.

A heartfelt thank you to all the participants. We hope to see you again soon, this time live in our HQ in Landquart!
