The purpose of the EPIC Meeting on Advanced Microoptics: Simulation, Fabrication & Characterization is to connect the supply chain of advanced manufacturing of microoptics with use cases in different application fields, such as CMOS image sensors, automotive lighting, AR/VR, medical, datacom, consumer electronics etc. Some manufacturing processes will also be discussed from large area master fabrication to additive manufacturing with nm-scale resolution. Furthermore, material challenges as well quantitative optical/surface measurements and lens shape fidelity, will be discussed.
