EOS Conferences on Optical Technologies

Your forum for all aspects of optical technologies like manufacturing and testing of optical systems and optofluidics.

EOS Optical Technologies covers two sub-conferences

  • Conference on Manufacturing, Tolerancing, and Testing of Optical Systems (MOS)
    MOS conference will highlight technology trends and technologies in the field of optics fabrication, tolerancing and testing.
  • Conference on Optofluidics
    The latest trends in the integration of optics with microfluidics will be explored at the Optofluidics Conference.

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 agrifood 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 topics

Manufacturing, Tolerancing and Testing of Optical Systems (MOS) The conference on Manufacturing, Tolerancing and Testing of Optical Systems (MOS) 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, tolerancing, 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.

One main goal of the meeting is to provide a better link between the design, the manufacturing, and the characterization of optical components and systems.
5th Conference on Optofluidics 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 one of the main meeting points of the international optofluidics community.
