Bellingham, Washington, USA (PRWEB) November 14, 2013
SPIE Photonics West, already the largest and most influential international laser and photonics meeting of the year, is increasing its focus on facilitating transfer of the latest research into new applications.
A new Translational Research virtual symposium and added sessions for technology transfer are joining four well-established technical symposia, a Green Photonics program, two major exhibitions, presentation of the prestigious Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation, professional development courses, and more. Dates are 1-6 February 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, with anticipated attendance of 20,000.
The Photonics West exhibition, with nearly 1,300 exhibiting companies and over 240 product launches, will run 4-6 February. Exhibitors include suppliers and developers of lasers, fiber optics, imaging, metrology, and more, with top companies such as Agilent Technologies, Hitachi, JENOPTIK, Schott, Hamamatsu, and L3 Communications.
The BiOS Expo, running 1-2 February with approximately 235 exhibiting companies, is the world’s largest biomedical optics and biophotonics exhibition. Technologies include therapeutic lasers, molecular imaging, biosensors, spectroscopy, and microscopic imaging.
Admission to both exhibitions is free.
The BiOS technical symposium (2,000 presentations) covers photonic therapeutics and diagnostics, neurophotonics, clinical technologies and systems, optogenetics, tissue optics, biomedical spectroscopy, microscopy, imaging, and nano/biophotonics.
Three conferences will focus on understanding the brain through exciting new imaging techniques, and a new conference will cover Optical Elastography and Tissue Biomechanics.
