“Green photonics” technologies to reduce energy consumption in manufacturing, lighting, and computing received special focus, in a panel discussion by industry executives on opportunities in emerging sustainable technologies and through awards recognizing top papers in the field.
Other panels featured executives of Intel, Oracle, and Philips Lumileds along with leading laser and optics suppliers and manufacturers and venture capitalists.
Apple, Intel, and Microsoft were among 27 recruiting companies in the SPIE Job Fair, along with companies including Daylight Solutions, Halma Photonics, and Teledyne Scientific & Imaging.
"Our attendees were very happy in San Francisco this week, because Photonics West is the best place to connect with other researchers, engineers, executives, and suppliers, discover what's new, and develop insights and ideas that only happen when smart people come together for face-to-face conversations," said Peter Hallett, SPIE Marketing and Industry Relations Director. "SPIE creates a productive environment that amplifies serendipity by bringing together thousands of creative people from across technical disciplines, leading to new possibilities, relationships, and projects that would not occur if you missed Photonics West.”
