2nd Conference on Optomechanical Engineering

Munich, Germany
26 June 2017 - 29 June 2017

Optomechanical Engineering, the branch of Optical Engineering related to the simulation and construction of complete optical systems, is a key discipline in most fields of optics and photonics. The building of instrumentation which needs to work in real-world environments, from space to underwater or inside the human body, strongly relies in the approaches taken to compensate the effects of hostile environments. Optomechanical Engineering will bring on the most relevant experts and approaches of this evolving field in the land between optics and mechanics. Contributions on simulation methods (mechanical, optical, thermal, etc.) tolerancing for optomechanics, novel assembly methods and materials, design strategies, and use cases are welcome. The aim of the conference is to bring together the vibrant community of optomechanical engineers working in fields as diverse as aerospace and medicine to share methods and experiences and exchange practical knowledge.

4th Conference on Optofluidics

Munich, Germany
26 June 2017 - 29 June 2017

Optofluidics emerged approximately 10 years ago aiming at the fusion of integrated optics with microfluidics. Since then, a wealth of new scientific principles and technologies have emerged. Through this conference, the latest developments in Optofluidics will be explored, serving as the main meeting point of the international optofluidics community.

5th Conference on Manufacturing of Optical Systems

Munich, Germany
26 June 2017 - 29 June 2017

Manufacturing of Optical Systems will highlight significant technology trends, emerging technologies and associated prospective developments in the field of optics fabrication and testing. This conference provides a forum for all aspects of optics fabrication and testing, ranging from micro to large-scale optics and from high value one-off to mass-produced components including lessons learned papers on special manufacturing issues such as polishing process stability and finishing processes for high-end optics, optics featuring clear apertures below 1 mm or above 100 mm in diameter. One main goal of the meeting is to provide a better link between the design, the manufacturing, and the characterization of optical components and systems. For the first time, there will be a reviewed industrial poster session displayed during the whole conference with companies presenting their key technology competences.
