Where optics professionals Meet – Collaborate – Innovate

Applied Industrial Optics (AIO) is a multidisciplinary meeting that focuses on innovative photonics research and its commercial impact. AIO brings together industry professionals with experience in overcoming the challenges of deploying and commercializing new products with researchers developing cutting-edge technology. AIO hosts panel sessions and tutorials aimed at fostering dialog and new collaborations among attendees. Topic categories include, but are not limited to, instrumentation, sensors, metrology, imaging systems, applied spectroscopy, electro-optics, medical and biological diagnostics, harsh environment systems, and emerging laser, fiber and photonic technologies.

"I attend many chemistry, photonics and optics conferences each year but AIO is the one meeting that is a must-go for me. The networking opportunities are simply outstanding. There are so many chances to connect to industrial researchers at this meeting, that I was able to initiate on average one new research collaboration each time I attend."
