Sarun Sumriddetchkajorn

National Electronics and Computer Technology Center

Biography:Dr. Sumriddetchkajorn received his B.Eng in Electrical Engineering (Honors) in 1994 from Khon Kaen University, Thailand. He earned his M.S. (1998) and Ph.D. (2000) in Optical Science and Engineering from University of Central Florida, USA. From 1994-1996, he was with Electro-Optics Lab at National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) under National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), Thailand, responsible for embossed hologram processing and computer generated holograms. Since 2001, he had rejoined NECTEC where he focused on solving technical issues related to agriculture, public health, security, and industry with optics and photonics. He also played leadership roles as Lab Director, Research Unit Director, Deputy Executive Director of NECTEC, Executive Director of NECTEC, and Acting Executive Vice President of NSTDA. He had also been Board Members of Thailand’s Digital Economy Promotion Agency. In addition, he was a Member of Advisory Committee for Thailand’s National Security Council on Science, Technology, and Digital and Chair of ASEAN Committee on Science and Technology’s Subcommittee on Information and Technology. He received the 2003 Young Technologist Award and the 2004 Young Scientist Award from the Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Technology under the Patronage of H. M. the King of Thailand. In addition, he was awarded the 2005 ICO/ICTP Award (a.k.a. ICO Gallieno Denardo Award) from the International Commission for Optics (ICO) and the ICTP. In 2002, he initiated the formation of the SPIE, Optica, and IPS Thailand Chapters. He is currently a Senior Member of IEEE. He is also a Fellow of SPIE and Optica.

Title of Presentation:Agri-Photonics in Action

Abstract:Agri-photonics has shown benefits of light exploitation in agriculture. This lecture starts with the overview of photonics sensing in precision agriculture. We then navigate from specific pain points in rice, sericulture, and shrimp farming sectors and present photonic-based prototypes that effectively address these issues with high potentials in scalability and affordability. Additionally, we briefly introduce the concept of combining optical plasmonic sensing with quantum technology, opening doors to future advancements of photonics sensing systems for agriculture and other applications.
