26 September 2016 - 30 September 2016

The European Optical Society (EOS) organizes a special EU project result dissemination Session for partners in EU projects during the EOS Bi-Annual Meeting (EOSAM) in Berlin, 26-30 September.

For the second time, partners in EU projects are invited to present their results in this special session.
Any topic of optics and photonics is acceptable in principle. Projects that have led to a prototype product are in particular encouraged to apply.  Applications by submitting a two page abstract via the website

Please describe in the abstract

  • the title and the aim of the project
  • the relevant EU call
  • the main results of the project

Furthermore, please list the proposed oral presentations (typically 3-4) and the presenters. Also briefly describe the contents of these presentations in the abstract.

Student visit to the Competence Centre for Thin Film and Nanotechnology for Photovoltaics Berlin (PVcomB)

Schwarzschildstrasse 3, 12489 Berlin
26 September 2016


Time: 13:00-13:45 (45 min), Monday 26 September

You have an opportunity to visit the labs, where complex thin films for photovoltaic systems are measured. These systems are developed together with PVcomB’s industial partners. You will get an insight in the application related criteria of preparing and analyzing thin films as used in photovoltaic devices.

PVcomB is walking distance from the tutorial and summer school rooms (5-10 minutes).

Please note that registration is binding, as there is limited spaces in the visit.

No food is allowed in the labs so please have lunch before the visit.

Free for EOSAM student attendees.

26 September 2016 - 30 September 2016

For the fifth time, a special session of EOSAM is dedicated to the “Grand Challenges of Photonics ". In this session world-class speakers are going to talk about technologies which are revolutionary, uncommon and not realizable to date, but can pave the way for an even brighter future in optics and photonics.

Optical Coatings for Laser Applications (OCLA 2016)

NTB Interstaatliche Hochschule für Technik, Switzerland
9 June 2016

Joint Workshop of NTB, RhySearch, EOS and Swissphotonics

After the success of the 2015 Workshop on Optical Coatings for Laser Applications, the workshop will again be held in 2016 at the NTB in Buchs on the 9th of June. As last year, presentations by highly reputed speakers in the fields of optical coatings, laser technology and LIDT measurement will again be held. The workshop also offers the opportunity for furthering communication and networking between industry and research groups.

Target public

The workshop is geared towards technically interested engineers and scientists working with laser optics, high-end optical thin film deposition and characterization.
