Optical Interference Coatings (OIC)

Optical Interference Coatings (OIC)

19 - 24 junho 2016
Lowes Ventana Canyon , Tucson, Arizona, USA
Optical Interference Coatings (OIC)

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.
