The organizers of CLEO: 2014, taking place June 8-13 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California, USA, today announced they are seeing a boost in numbers heading into the event next week.

Recently, a team of researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) Medical School has developed a new technology that can non-invasively image the human lymphatic system (also known as “lymphatics”).

CLEO: 2014, the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics, is the premier international forum for scientific and technical optics providing the full range of critical developments in the field, showcasing the most significant milestones from laboratory to marketplace.

The Optical Society (OSA) today called on the optics and photonics community to participate in the just-announced “Request for Information (RFI)” from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) related to the Obama administration’s National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI).

The new system, developed by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, can remotely sense objects across distances as long as 30 feet, 10 times farther than what could be done with comparable current low-power laser systems.
