CARDIFF, UK (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
More than 600 technical papers on the latest developments in optics and optoelectronic devices, technologies, and their integration will be presented at SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics 2013 next month. The international symposium will be held at the Clarion Congress Hotel in the historic city of Prague, Czech Republic, 15-18 April 2013.
Conferences will cover recent advances in petawatt photonics, high-power and high-repetition rate systems, diode-pumped laser systems, and FELs, along with the latest research in optical sensing, holography, x-ray optics, metamaterials, nonlinear and quantum optics.
Attendees will be able to learn first-hand about new developments in ground-breaking intense laser-matter interaction research, inspired by what will be the future site of one of the world’s most advanced laser facilities, ELI Beamlines. The facility, expected to be open to users by January 2016, will serve researchers in laser science as well as other fields including material sciences, engineering, medicine, biology, chemistry, and others with its multifunctional and user-friendly design.
A two-day exhibition running 16-17 April will connect researchers with more than twenty suppliers and project partners from around the world who provide optical instruments and systems to address an ever-increasing number of industrial and research applications, in areas such as imaging and vision, defence, telecommunications, space, transportation, industrial process control, and laser fusion.
A special technical session on the prospects for inertial fusion energy (IFE) will feature invited speakers from the HiPER and LIFE laser energy projects.
ICO, the International Commission for Optics, will present three of its annual awards during the event, with talks by award
