SPIE Photonics West is Still ‘the Place to Meet’ for Researchers, Developers, and Suppliers of Ubiquitous Technology
Date:2/8/2013

me/rdsdgsg9" title="Jim Fujimoto video" onclick="linkClick(this.href)">Jim Fujimoto (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) said the challenge for the community in the face of pressure on federal funds for research is relevance. “We’re at the point now where many of the technologies that are being developed here can be translated to clinical applications and have real-world clinical impacts,” he said.

LASE symposium chair Andreas Tünnermann (Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering and Friedrich-Schiller Universität Jena) said he found optimism among conference attendees from science and from industry, despite financial troubles in Europe and elsewhere. “People are looking at a bright future; they believe in what they are doing,” he said. “They are here to think about a lot of products, and to bring these products to the market."

An ongoing theme of the week was the potential for the technology and the commitment on the part of researchers to “help others,” as BiOS symposium chair Rox Anderson (Wellman Center for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Harvard Medical School) noted. A session on new biomedical optics technologies with life-saving potential illustrated his point. Among the eight talks were:

  •     Ernst Baumberg (Max Planck Institute) on optogenetics, a relatively new field that uses light to map and control living brain or nerve tissues, and loss of sight, stroke, and other conditions.
  •     Ben Potsaid (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) on optical coherence tomography (OCT), a powerful optical technique for imaging through living tissue and mapping blood flow for disease diagnostics.
  •     Jonathan Sorger (Intuitive Surgical) on the use of robotics in surgery and t
