OSA Optical Design and Fabrication Congress

OSA Optical Design and Fabrication Congress

09 - 13 July 2017
Denver Marriott City Center, Denver, Colorado United States

Optical design and fabrication play an ever-increasing role in our modern society as more applications for optics are developed, especially in the areas of imaging, sensing, and illumination systems. Of particular interest is the ability to utilize modern design tools to reduce cost, augment manufacturability, and enhance system performance.  New materials and unprecedented capabilities to create and measure precise aspheric and freeform optical surfaces have created a whole new design space for imaging, while new computational tools have allowed more complex systems to be both designed and fabricated.  These capabilities have extended to micro-optics, head-mounted displays, and large optical systems.  The 2017 OSA Optical Design and Fabrication Congress will address these issues in detail with a set of three related topical meetings that address optical design, optical fabrication and testing, and freeform optics.  The Congress will bring scientists, engineers, and designers together so they can interact and learn in both informal and formal settings.

Congress Reception
10 July, 18:30-20:00

Join your fellow attendees for the Congress Reception. Enjoy delectable fare while networking. The reception is open to committee/presenting author/student and full conference attendees. Conference attendees may purchase extra tickets for their guest. 


Joint Poster Session
11 July, 18:00-19:30

Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper. 


IODC Illumination and Lens Design Problems Presentation
12 July, 18:00-20:00

Join the IODC community for a guaranteed highlight of the conference: the illumination and lens design contest presentations. As usual, significant work has gone into developing and scoring the submissions, as well as all of the hard work put in by solution submitters. Vist the contest page for complete information.
