Applied Industrial Optics (AIO)

07 - 11 June 2015
Renaissance Arlington Capital View, Arlington, Virginia, USA

Advances in optical technologies and their use in commercial applications.
Applied optical technologies enhance product offerings and help expand the market reach of organizations in very diverse segments of global commerce, such as applications in environmental, defense, oil and gas, food/beverage, medical, and pharmaceutical sectors. At AIO, researchers from public and private entities with experience in overcoming the challenges of deploying and commercializing new technology meet research groups striving to get their technology out of the lab. Topics include instrumentation, metrology, imaging systems, applied spectroscopy, clinical diagnostics, harsh environment systems and emerging laser, fiber, and photonic technologies.
