The availability of High-end photonic systems from major laser and optics manufacturers helps R&D to win time and efforts in the “quest for answers” in every applied and fundamental scientific research. This meeting will highlight off-the-shelf availability of photonics solutions such as lasers, PICs and optics for R&D addressing new ideas and wishes from the scientific community to the photonics industry.

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

These online technology meetings take place in Zoom with a limited group of people. If you would like to attend the meeting, please register below. There are limited seats and we allow only one person per company, but all our online technology meetings can be viewed LIVE on YouTube or be viewed afterwards if you have missed it.
