    Talk Title:

    Photonics for Food, Funding and Future development

     

    In this talk we will explore how the science of light spectroscopy can be used to gain insight into a wide variety of food and food related products, with examples of collaborations and techniques. We will also briefly show what funding schemes are available to industry to assist in carrying out such useful investigations.
