Optica Sensing Congress

The Technical Program

In 2024, the Optica Sensing Congress and Optica Imaging Congress will be presented together as an in-person event with on-demand content. Archived recordings of in-person talks or prerecorded videos from remote presenters will be available on demand soon after the event concludes. A combined total of nine topical meetings and an enhanced exhibition will provide greater opportunities to learn and network with a significantly larger community of scientists. 

Optics-based sensors and sensing technologies are increasingly becoming a more important part of our modern world. From sensing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere to detecting the presence of trace molecules in the human body, optics can be used in a variety of ways to achieve compact, low-cost, stand-off sensing with extreme sensitivity and selectivity.

This congress presents the latest developments in optical sensing and sensors as well as their use in a variety of applications. Of particular note are a number of hot topics being addressed, including agriphotonics, fiber-based sensing, THz sensing, sensing solutions in manufacturing and the latest developments in comb spectroscopy, including fiber lasers and mid-IR sources.

  • Learn about the latest advances in sensing for the environment, including dual-comb sensing of atmospheric gases, compact LIDAR and hyperspectral sensors.
  • Discover relevant techniques for sensing in an industrial environment such as real-time process monitoring on the factory floor, spectroscopic food safety inspection and spectroscopic analysis in harsh environments.
  • Understand the latest applications of fiber and nanophotonic sensors for biological and chemical sensing, including the newest wearable sensor technology.
  • Investigate novel laboratory spectroscopic techniques and methodologies for disruptive sensing technology, such as novel light sources and detectors, photonic integrated circuit (PIC) sensors and sensing networks.
  • Explore the production, detection, and use of THz radiation for metrology and sensing, including comb-source generation and biosensing applications.
