Fiber optics sensors conquered nearly every industry: healthcare, automotive, structural monitoring, oil and gas and military to name a few. Each application comes with a set of requirements for the fiber. This meeting will address the capabilities of and expectation for specialty fibers and new applications that can be enabled.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships. 

Watch us LIVE on YouTube
