Exploiting the wealth of devices and techniques developed for telecoms in other areas of technology requires a clear view of the advantages which optical techniques can bring, most notably the high multiplexed data rate, immunity from electromagnetic interference and low invasion. Examples where these attributes are making an impact are in high-power lasers, sensing in oil wells, and in the biosciences, The talk will explore prospects for building new technologies and applications through harnessing light in unexpected ways, Security, defence and manufacturing will benefit from novel remote sensors, intruder detection. X-ray generation and rapid laser cutting and prototyping. Remarkably, the milliwatts of telecommunications can be scaled to powers as high as kilowatts in fibre amplifiers. In addition, the demands of these new applications arc identifying shortcomings in our existing arsenal of photonics devices and their performance. The hope is that solutions to these problems will return technology to telecoms and result in improved devices.
