SPIE Photonics West, the world's largest photonics and laser event, features 1150 exhibitors, 1200 papers and 65 courses. Industry events will include panels on silicon photonics and photonic integrated circuits, diagnostic opportunities for nonlinear optical microscopy, and executive perspectives on the world of optics and photonics, among others. See 1150 companies at the Photonics West 2012 Exhibition, the marketplace for the photonics and laser industry.
Photonics West symposia include LASE, the world's leading conference on, fiber, solid-state, disk, ultrafast, and semiconductor lasers, as well as VECSELS; MOEMS-MEMS, the conference focused on the micro- and nanofabricated electromechanical and optical components; OPTO, a conference that addresses the latest developments in a broad range of optoelectronic materials and devices, including semiconductor lasers and LEDs, and the technologies that integrate them for cutting-edge industrial applications; and the new Green Photonics virtual symposium, which brings together the latest research in photonics applications for energy, sustainability, and conservation.
The trade show and consference kicks off with BiOS, where the latest optical and photonic technologies used in diagnostics, therapeutics, and imaging are presented and discussed.
