Optica Photonics and Advanced Manufacturing Technologies Industry Summit at EV Group

23 - 24 May 2023

EVG, St. Florian am Inn, Austria

Optica Industry Summit - The Premier Annual Event for Leaders in Photonics and Advanced Manufacturing Technologies

The nature of photonics technologies in the manufacturing industry has changed significantly over time. Historically, the size of these technologies was one of the most critical features. Researchers focused their efforts on miniaturization with more affordable costs of optical, photonics, and electronics technologies. Now, manufacturing firms have shifted to improving both the size and response times of photonics technologies. Scientists are developing smaller and faster devices, such as integrated submicron devices, to enter the space, biotechnology, and LiDAR markets - possible applications include optical datacom, MEMS, microfluidics, biosensors, astronomy, and surface sciences. Innovators have used this same sensor technology to improve self-driving vehicles' 3D capabilities and response time. The Summit aims to bring together the entire community, from manufacturing companies and their supply chain partners to end users, focusing on addressing their challenges in photonics, automotive, and consumer electronics areas. Topics of discussion include nanoimprint lithography, maskless lithography technology, metaoptics, AR waveguides, and wafer-level optics. This Summit is hosted at EVG’s headquarters in St. Florian am Inn, Austria. Together we can solve these challenges and optimize supply chain collaboration!
