Digital Optical Technologies 2021

A conference dedicated to the emerging digital trends and perspectives in optics.

The Digital Optical Technologies 2021 conference is organized by SPIE.Europe.

Digital Optical Technologies focuses on the components, systems design, and applications of emerging digital optical technologies in all social, academic, medical, and industrial areas. The conference reflects trends in recent technologies such as 3D sensors, immersive multimedia, novel displays, light sources and imaging systems.

Digital optical technologies include optics designed by digital means, fabricated by digital means, with functionalities enhanced or altered by digital techniques (computational optics or dynamic optics).
