World of Photonics Congress: Advanced Topics
There's news from the world of congress:
SPIE addressed with "Digital Optical Technologies" a new conference topic.
And the Head and Neck Optical Diagnostics and Intervention Society organized their annual scientific meeting within the European Conferences of Biomedical Optics.
New Conference theme: Digital Optical Technologies
This new conference focused on the components, systems design, and applications of emerging digital optics. It will highlight all digital aspects from design, fabrication, to integration in systems and final functionality, such as:
- Design: numerical algorithms to help design novel optics from macroscopic (freeform optics) to nanoscopic scales (metamaterials, plasmonics,...).
- Fabrication: novel digital lithography and freeform mold diamond turning techniques and technologies.
- Functionality: computational techniques to enhance functionality in imaging and display. Digital switching, tuning and reconfiguring to alter optics functionality dynamically.
Researchers, engineers, managers, industry leaders as well as market analysts are welcome to share their knowledge and experience, and be part of the ongoing digital optics revolution.
Come and experience first-hand hot new consumer products demoed throughout the Symposium, such as Mixed Reality (Microsoft Hololens) and Virtual Reality (Oculus and HTC Vive) headsets.
Learn about recent advances in using digital technologies to enhance the performance of optical imaging and display.
Find out about new approaches that push digital principles at the macro-, micro and nanoscales to the forefront of optics.
ECBO hosts the 9th scientific meeting of HNODIS
The Head and Neck Optical Diagnostics and Intervention Society (HNODIS) will held its 9th scientific meeting in conjunction with the European Conferences on Biomedical Optics (ECBO).
The ECBO is the part of The World of Photonics Congress, which runs co-located with the world's leading trade fair LASER World of PHOTONICS in Munich from June, 25 to 29, 2017.
HNODIS was founded in 2008. Its mission is to promote and encourage the study and practice of optical diagnostics and intervention techniques in the head and neck.
This includes the use of technologies like: elastic scattering spectroscopy (ESS), differential path-length spectroscopy (DPS), near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, confocal reflectance microscopy (CRM), fluorescence imaging, microendoscopy, optical coherence tomography (OCT), lasers, photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photochemical internalization (PCI).
