Applied Industrial Optics: Spectroscopy, Imaging, and Metrology (AIO)

23 June 2013 – 27 June 2013 OSA Virtual Event

Applied Industrial Optics offers a different networking and knowledge-sharing experience with a focus on the utilization of photonics and optical technology to solve real world problems.

At AIO, academic and industrial researchers with experience in overcoming the challenges of deploying and commercializing new technology will interact with research groups striving to get their technology out of the lab.

AIO will provide a platform for industry-driven research and product development like no other.

Optical Fibre Sensors for Industrial Applications in the Safety and Security, PLENARY
Brian Culshaw, University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom,
Abstract: Optical fibre sensors appeared over 40 years ago.  Important prospects lie in safety and security.  This talk will explore why, and highlight successes, false starts and areas where more is needed for user acceptance.

Congress Reception
Monday 24 June, 19.00 – 20.30
Join your fellow attendees for the Congress Reception. Enjoy delectable fare while networking. The reception is open to committee/presenting author/student and full conference attendees. Conference attendees may purchase extra tickets for their guest.
Joint Poster Sessions
Tuesday 25, June, 16.30 – 18.00
Posters are an integral part of the technical program and offer a unique networking opportunity, where presenters can discuss their results one-to-one with interested parties. Each author is provided with a 4 ft. × 8 ft. (1.22 m × 2.44 m) board on which to display the summary and results of his or her paper.
AIO & COSI Joint Session
Wednesday, 26 June, 11.00 – 13.00
AIO & IS Joint Sessions
Wednesday, 26 June, 14.30 – 19.00
This conference is about creating a collaborative environment with the following flow of information:

1.) Companies, research groups, and/or individuals with new and innovative optical technologies can share their technology developments while gaining a better understanding of what is required to successfully apply them in real world environments.

2.) Companies, research groups, and/or individuals who have already successfully applied optical technologies within diverse market segments can share their experiences and lessons learned.

3.) Companies can stay abreast of new technologies in the development pipeline that will enhance their product offerings and/or reveal new potential applications and emerging markets.
