Advances in photonics research with applications touching nearly every aspect of life will draw 17,500 scientists and industry leaders to SPIE Photonics West to San Jose, CA, U.S., from Jan. 24-29, 2009. Photonics West addresses experts in biomedical optics, lasers, MOEMS/MEMS, and optoelectronics. The week-long event offers research presentations, two exhibitions, industry executive panels, a continuing education program, a career fair, and numerous networking events. Both exhibitions and panels are open to registrants at no charge.
Panel topics include:
- Silicon photonics and optical interconnects
- Hot markets in photonics: solar
- Perspectives on the world of photonics
- Applications of high-power solid state lasers
The exhibition will include more than 1,100 companies showing the latest in components, systems, and applications for optics and photonics manufacturing, electronic imaging, infrared sources and detectors, optical detectors, fibers and materials, cameras and displays, and other innovations.
