Optical Interference Coatings (OIC)
19 - 24 June 2016
19 June 2016
Loews Ventana Canyon , Tucson,
Arizona United States
The world's premier meeting for the global technical interchange in the field of optical interference coatings.
This meeting serves as a focal point for global technical interchange in the field of optical interference coatings. It will include papers on the latest results in research, development and the application of optical coatings. The general areas to be reported on include technologies used in deposition and process control, advances in materials as well as the properties of the various materials used as substrates and as coatings,the latest techniques used for the characterization of optical coatings, advances in computer and analytical design techniques, and the application of optical coatings for solar energy, lighting, display, nano-structures, biological, decorative, laser, lithography, and astronomical applications to mention a few uses.
The conference, like its predecessors, meets every three years and represents an important forum in which the latest advancements in the broad area of optical coatings from research to applications are reported. The format of the meeting includes invited papers by leaders in the field, oral presentations and poster sessions with ample discussion periods. There are no parallel sessions.

2016 OIC Special Technical Session Dedicated to Optical coatings for Gravitational Wave Detections
To mark the first-time successful detection of gravitational wave by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory, predicted by Albert Einstein 100 years ago, a special technical session devoted to optical coatings for gravitational wave detections has been planned. In this special technical session, there will be invited talks as well as contributed papers. All aspects of optical coatings for gravitational wave detections will be covered. For more information on the special session dedicated to gravitational wave detections, click here. We welcome you to submit a paper to the 2016 conference. To accommodate the special session, the submission deadline has been extended to March 1, 2016.
