LASER World of PHOTONICS: Positive Results

Juni 25, 2009

With 1,040 exhibitors (2007: 1,008), the exposition LASER World of PHOTONICS 2009 (June 15-18, Munich, Germany) set a new record. The percentage of companies coming from outside Germany rose from 53% in 2007 to 57% this year. The exhibition area was expanded from three halls to four, which brought the total to 42,000 m² of floor space. This additional space particularly benefited the two largest exhibition segments, “Lasers and Optronics” and “Lasers and Laser Systems for Manufacturing.” With over 24,000 attending professionals, the trade show organizer’s expectations were exceeded by a small margin (2007: 26,655). A slight drop in the number of attendees from Germany is primarily due to the lower number of attending professionals from the industrial sector, which has been hit particularly hard by the current economic difficulties.

World of Photonics

Februar 13, 2009

In June 2009, two international events for optical technologies in Europe will once again take place in Munich, Germany. From June 15-18, the New Munich Trade Fair Centre will host the exposition „LASER World of PHOTONICS“ and from June 14-19 the „World of Photonics Congress“ will be held at the International Congress Centre Munich. Both events address to representatives from research, the laser and optoelectronics industries, professionals involved in medicine and technology as well as physicists, chemists, doctors, engineers, system designers, retail companies and service-providers. This year, the trade show and the congress have expanded their offerings for biophotonics and life sciences. The trade show is setting up an exhibition focus area dedicated to the subject of biophotonics. The World of Photonics Congress will present the field of biophotonics at the „Medical Laser Applications“ conference. Experts in the field of lasers in medicine, optical diagnostics, high-end endoscopy and minimally invasive surgery will give practically orientated presentations.

SPIE Photonics West Offers New Insights

Januar 19, 2009

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.
