Optica and Optimax are teaming up to host a disruptive Industry Summit, all about the fascinating world of Freeform Optics.

We invite you to our in-person Industry Summit dedicated to the field of freeform optics, where we aim to bring together the entire community, from design developers to end users of freeforms. The summit will focus on various aspects including design, manufacturing, metrology, and especially the applications of freeform optics. Emphasizing live interactions, this meeting is an ideal platform for fostering business relationships and collaborative opportunities within the industry.

Freeform optics is the avant-garde of optical innovation, offering nearly limitless potential in shaping light. Their non-standard shapes cater to most advanced applications, whether in aerospace, healthcare, automotive lighting, laser machining, or virtual reality via optimizing size and weight for more compact, efficient technologies.

These advancements do come with challenges—complex design approaches, non-standard manufacturing techniques, and the need for advanced testing and metrology methods. This industry-centric gathering will bring together the entire freeform optics community. The aim? To address together the challenges and unmet demands, and partner to roadmap the next advances.

This event is exclusively in-person, and no recordings will be made to foster a free exchange of ideas and business cards among participants. It's all about real-time, meaningful connections and discussions.
