SPIE Photonics West is Still ‘the Place to Meet’ for Researchers, Developers, and Suppliers of Ubiquitous Technology
Date:2/8/2013

SAN FRANCISCO, California, USA (PRWEB) February 08, 2013

A record number of international participants attended SPIE Photonics West 2013 this week, launching new products, connecting with researchers, developers, and suppliers, and reporting on new and as-yet unpublished quality-of-life advances in the light-based technologies of optics and photonics.

Total registered attendance, at 20,737, was up more than 2% from last year. The exhibitions were larger (1,239 companies in the Photonics West Exhibition, and 225 in the BiOS Expo), and there were more papers (over 4,500) in the technical program.

Even more than numbers of booth visitors, exhibitors said they were happy with the quality. "This is the best Photonics West I’ve seen in 10 years ? and they all are great,” said Kerry Van Iseghem, co-founder of Imaging Solutions Group.

“Photonics West is the place to meet everybody we need to,” said Robert Miller, Business Manager, Optoelectronics and Photovoltaics, at EMD Chemicals. “Because we’re not just a photonics company, it’s very important to be able to expand our horizons, and with so many diverse companies here, it really fits our needs.”

“In past years, people stopping at the booth have asked, who are you, what do you do. This year, people know what we do. They’re saying, I have this application – how can you help me, or I have an idea – how can I work with you on this,” said Bonnie Van Wie, Marketing Communications Coordinator, OFS Specialty Photonics

Technical papers were presented in four major areas: biomedical optics, lasers, optoelectronics, and MOEMS-MEMS (micro-opto-electro-mechanical and micro-electro-mechanical systems). Attendance was strong, despite some concern around U.S. government travel funding restrictions.
