Trends, Advances and Prospects of Optical Imaging in Germany and Beyond
Michael Totzeck, Fellow, Corporate Research and Technology, Carl Zeiss AG, Germany
High wage industrial countries like Germany face a number of unique challenges, like the demographic change, globalization, and the need for a constant technological competitive edge. Optical imaging is a key technology to address these challenges. Lithography for example is one of the core technologies in the production of integrated circuits as well as camera chips and displays. This drives an abundant computational capacity giving rise to other technologies like computational imaging, machine learning , big data analysis and virtual/augmented reality. The resulting digitalization of optics in turn pushes miniaturized optics ranging from smartphone cameras, to microoptics, down to plasmonics and metamaterials. On system side the trend to lightfield-imaging, 3D-imaging and multimodal imaging continues and finds applications in research and healthcare. For that high imaging speed and large fields are key. The German academic and industrial landscape, in this regard, will be addressed, too.
Michael Totzeck received his PhD in physics from the Technical University of Berlin in 1989 shortly after the break of the Berlin Wall. After heading a group on waveoptics there, he moved 1995 to the University of Stuttgart to found a group on quantitative, high resolution microscopy. In 2002 he joined Carl Zeiss as a principal scientist for polarization optics in optical lithography. In 2008 he moved to Zeiss corporate research and technology to head the metrology department there. In 2013 he was appointed as a honorary professor by the University of Konstanz. In 20015 he became a Zeiss Fellow. He is author and coauthor of 68 patent families and about 30 papers in refereed journals. His research interests comprise lithography, high-NA imaging, optical metrology, optical design & simulation, polarization-optics and digital optics.
Coherent X-ray Imaging
Keith Nugent, Deputy vice-Chancellor (Research), La Trobe University, Australia
Coherent X-ray imaging has been the subject of intense research over the last decade. The motivations for this work are to fully exploit the massive increase in the coherent flux available from the latest generation of synchrotron sources and to develop new approaches to molecular images using X-ray free-electron laser sources. The state of the field will be reviewed and opportunities identified.
Professor Keith Nugent is currently Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research). Professor Nugent holds an Honours degree in physics from the University of Adelaide and a PhD in laser physics from the Australian National University. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, the Australian Institute of Physics and the American Physical Society. Prior to joining La Trobe University, Professor Nugent was Director of the Australian Synchrotron, Laureate Professor of Physics at the University of Melbourne and Research Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coherent X-ray Science, a multiple-institution centre which undertook research at the interface of physics, biology and chemistry..

Real-Time and Real-Color Video Imaging System by Photonics Polymers for 8K
Yasuhiro Koike, Professor, Keio University; Director, Keio Photonics Research Institute ; Member of Keio University Board of Councilor, Japan
The latest status on advanced photonics polymer technology will be reviewed, focusing on overwhelmingly realistic 8K display achieved by high-speed graded-index plastic optical fiber, zero and ultra-high birefringent polymer films, etc.
Yasuhiro Koike specializes in “photonics polymer” which is an interdisciplinary field of material science in polymer and photonics. He is the inventor of the world’s fastest graded-index plastic optical fiber (GIPOF). He also invented Highly Scattered Optical Transmission (HSOT) Polymer that has been widely adopted as LCD backlight of major laptop computers such as Sony VAIO, SHARP, and TOSHIBA. With his photonics polymer technologies, he is developing high speed and high quality display with real colors for 8K. He was a core researcher of a research project on face-to-face communication system based on the photonics polymer technologies in the FIRST Program funded by the Cabinet Office of Japan.

AO & IS Joint Keynote
Adaptive Optics in Vision Science and Ophthalmology
Josef Bille, University of Heidelberg, Germany
More than 25 years ago, the first in vivo measurement of the eye’s wave aberration was demonstrated at the Univ. of Heidelberg, using the Shack-Hartmann method. Since then, various new diagnostic and treatment modalities have been successfully introduced, like adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (AO-SLO), adaptive optics optical coherence tomography (AO-OCT) and adaptive optics two-photon ophthalmoscopy (AO-TPO), as well as customized refractive-surgical techniques, like customized LASIK (e.g. CustomVue), femtosecond laser refractive
surgery (e.g. ReLEx, SMILE), femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) and various customized intraocular lens (IOL) developments, including postoperative in-vivo IOL fine-tuning.
Professor Josef Bille, winner of the 2012 European Inventor Lifetime Achievement Award is a pioneer in the field of corrective laser eye surgery. For more than 40 years he has worked on developing and refining a method for mapping irregularities in the cornea and fine tuning the lasers required to repair them. Central to the technology is his groundbreaking work in wavefront technology, a measurement technology which can scan the human eye with extraordinary precision for small errors. With a detailed map of these errors, it is possible to devise precise surgical procedures (wavefront guided laser eye surgery) or to produce tailor-made lenses. Professor Bille's contributions to the field of laser eye surgery allow medical professionals to map the structure of the eye with unprecedented precision, and provides them with lasers that are accurate and delicate enough to correct nearly any imperfection. His work has led to the creation of five successful companies, creating over 1000 jobs, and impacting the lives of millions of patients worldwide who have now been treated using this technology.
