    (ANSAmed) NAPLES, NOVEMBER 12 - The Italian national research center (CNR) and the University of Tel Aviv have joined forces for advanced research in the optics and photonics field. The agreement was signed on Thursday in Naples between CNR's National Optics Institute (INO), which has one of its two headquarters in Naples, and the Israeli university as part of the annual INO symposium, during which the academic world meets with its political and entrepreneurial counterparts on future prospects for research in sectors of strategic growth such as optics and photonics. Opening the Neapolitan event was Ady Arie, director of the University of Tel Aviv's School of Electrical Engineering, who discussed innovative systems for the generation of new frequencies using non-linear optical techniques. The possible applications of these innovative techniques hold a great deal of promise for the communications, sensor-based gas detection, environmental and medical sectors. ''The collaboration set in motion with the University of Tel Aviv,'' said CNR's INO director Paolo De Natale, ''began in past years and made it possible to achieve important scientific results. After the agreement signed today in Naples, we will be able to develop the works started, strengthening the synergy developed between our two countries.'' CNR noted that the synergy in the scientific and research fields had been stepped up after Prime Minister Matteo Renzi expressed the hope for greater collaboration during his visit to Israel. A roundtable discussion was held in the afternoon on the most advanced technologies of optical diagnostics and sensors with important applications that will help, for example, with innovative treatments in the medical field, using for example radiations that make it possible to reveal elements that are invisible to human eyes without damaging biological tissues, or sensors able to reveal environmentally polluting substances with a sensitivity that had never before been achieved.
