NASHUA, N.H. and WASHINGTON, June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Laser Focus World, the leading photonics-industry trade publication, and the Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA), a not-for-profit association that serves as the nexus for vision, transformation, and growth of the photonics and optoelectronics industry, recently announced a new conference and exhibition, OPTOmism: Photonics for the Green Revolution, to be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California May 18-20, 2009.
As the global community increasingly recognizes the importance of energy conservation, thinking "green," and low carbon footprints, the photonics and optoelectronics industry is gearing up to provide many of the solutions that will enable the "Green Revolution." From highly efficient solid-state lighting to clean manufacturing using laser processing, and from new low-power display and communications technologies to photovoltaic energy generation, the photonics industry will deliver solutions that enable greater efficiency, smaller carbon footprints, and promote economic growth.
This new conference and exhibition will bring increased focus to the growing role that photonics is playing in global efforts to "live green." A broad range of senior speakers from government, industry, and academia will enable attendees to find out about the technology, business, and regulatory aspects of this fast-growing field.
Notes OIDA CEO Michael Lebby, "OPTOmism is not just about the future of photonics, but about the future of our planet and how photonics will support a 'green' lifestyle." At OPTOmism, senior industry executives, researchers, engineers, and investors will have an opportunity to examine many of these technologies, explore their business implications, and review technology roadmaps.
In addition, OPTOmism will attract companies that supply manufacturing
equipment, materials, and components to related markets such as solid-state
