2nd Conference on Optomechanical Engineering

Munich, Germany
26 June 2017 - 29 June 2017

(Merged into Manufacturing of Optical Systems Conference)

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.

General Chair: Santiago Royo, Centre for Sensors, Instruments and Systems Development (CD6), UPC-BarcelonaTech (ES)
