Abstract digital background

Discussion meeting organised by Dr Daniel Slocombe and Professor Adrian Porch.

Can we harness recently discovered microwave laser technology for efficient 6G communications? Can microwaves solve our waste plastics problem, produce clean hydrogen and high-performance batteries? An innovation revolution has been taking place in the microwave spectrum that could impact global sustainability. In this meeting, researchers working across the sciences will come together to discuss recent breakthroughs and confront major challenges.
