Applied Industrial Optics

Applied Industrial Optics

26 - 29 June 2017
Hyatt Regency San Francisco, San Francisco, California United States

Advances in optical technologies and their use in commercial applications:

Recent advances in applied optics have resulted in technological breakthroughs with significant commercial implications. The environmental, defense, oil & gas, food & beverage, medical, and pharmaceutical industries are just a few of the sectors that are consistently pushing the boundaries in applied industrial optics (AIO). At AIO, industry experts/professionals with experience in overcoming the challenges of deploying and commercializing new technology meet research groups striving to get their technology out of the lab. In addition to traditional presentations, AIO hosts panel sessions aimed at fostering dialog and new collaborations amongst attendees. Topic categories include:  instrumentation, metrology, imaging systems, applied spectroscopy, wearable devices, clinical diagnostics, harsh environment systems and emerging laser, fiber, and photonic technologies.

Selected Topics:

  • LED/laser lighting
  • Autonomous/Automated Systems
  • Flexible Photonics
  • Organic Optics
  • Nano/micro-photonics
  • Non-destructive Evaluation/Non-invasive testing
  • Biophotonics
  • Wearable Technology
  • Fabrication and Manufacturing
