Frontiers in Optics presents scientific advancements
Date:9/10/2007

With more than 600 papers presented by the world's most renowned physicists and engineers, OSA's Frontiers in Optics meeting will give a comprehensive update on the most significant new developments in the science of light.

What: Frontiers in Optics, the 91st annual OSA meeting

When: September 16-20, 2007

Where: Fairmont Hotel, San Jose, Calif.

Conference highlights include:

  • New research revealing:
    • A new device that may help give sight to the blind Researchers at the University of Southern California are developing a tiny camera for prosthetic systems that can be implanted directly into the human retina.
    • Advanced technology that promises to make flights safer in inclement weather Airline pilots will have more advance warning of potentially hazardous atmospheric conditions -- such as icing -- using a new near-infrared Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) system.
    • Potential for increased success with in vitro fertilization using a new technique that singles out fastest sperm
    • Researchers at the University of California, Irvine, and San Diego, have developed a laser sorting technique to separate stronger, faster sperm from slower sperm.

  • Keynote presentations from:
    • Nobel Laureate John Hall on the optical frequency comb, one technology that will aid in planet-finder space missions
    • Eli Yabonovitch, University of California, Berkeley and a member of the National Academy of Engineering and National Academy of Sciences, on nanotechnology and the role optics and photonics plays in future advancements

  • Exhibition featuring more than 70 leading companies in optics and photonics, including Thorlabs, Coherent, Inc. and Melles Griot.

  • Special events discussing the role optics is playing in alternative energy, focusing on quantum mechanics and looking at evolving broadband demands and the technologies to meet them.

  • A "What's Hot in Optics Today? session looking at the most important technical advances in every segment of the field from medicine to communications.
