EOS Conferences on Optical Technologies

EOS Conferences on Optical Technologies 2017

Your forum for all aspects of optical technologies like manufacturing of optical systems, optofluidics, optomechanical engineering and light engineering.

Conference topics:

Manufacturing of Optical Systems
Manufacturing of Optical Systems will highlight significant technology trends, emerging technologies and associated prospective developments in the field of optics fabrication and testing. This conference provides a forum for all aspects of optics fabrication and testing, ranging from micro to large-scale optics and from high value one-off to mass-produced components including lessons learned papers on special manufacturing issues such as polishing process stability and finishing processes for high-end optics, optics featuring clear apertures below 1 mm or above 100 mm in diameter, as well as on novel characterization techniques
Precise Optics Fabrication, High-Volume Fab, Micro-Optics and Structured Surfaces
Finishing methods, e.g. SPDT, MRF, IBF, ductile grinding, FJP, plasma jets, laser melting, CCP, polishing
Testing for Fabrication and Assembly
Optimization techniques in optics fabrication
Fabrication friendly Optical Design and Tolerancing
Specification, Characterization and Testing of Roughness, Shape, Light Scattering, Defects, subsurface damage and mid-spatials
Lessons learned producing high level aspheres and freeform optics
Optofluidics emerged approximately 10 years ago aiming at the fusion of integrated optics with microfluidics. Since then, a wealth of new scientific principles and technologies have emerged. Through this conference, the latest developments in Optofluidics will be explored, serving as the main meeting point of the international optofluidics community.

Mission statement

Advancements in technology and innovative manufacturing processes are crucial for optical sector growth in today's global markets. Markets with high developmental momentum include the energy and semiconductor, life sciences, health care and the agri-food industries. Optical technologies play a crucial role in these markets, the importance of sophisticated but economically priced optical components being vital to new products and applications.

Conference highlights

Industrial poster session at the EOS Conference on Manufacturing of Optical Systems:
For the first time, there was a reviewed industrial poster session being organized where companies are entitled to present their key technology competences on a poster that was presented during the whole time of the conference in the conference session room.

About the organizers

The purpose of the European Optical Society (EOS) is to contribute to progress in optics and related sciences, and to promote their applications at the European and international levels, by bringing together individuals and legal entities involved in these disciplines and their applications.

The European Optical Society (EOS) serves as the joint forum for all individuals, companies, organisations, educational institutions, and learned and professional societies, who recognise the opportunity and challenge that a common European base provides for the development of optics in its broadest sense.
