EPIC Workshop on Optical Adhesives

28 June 2017

Laser World of Photonics, Munich, Germany

Hosted by

ams technologies


Optical adhesives promise to be the material of choice for the precise and permanent joining of optical elements. But what type of adhesive is the right one for my application? Will it meet all my requirements like optical absorption, refracting index or durability? How to dispense very small amounts? And what about curing?

All these topics will be addressed at the workshop. On Wednesday 28th June 2017, four technical experts will present all relevant facts and trends around optical adhesives.

Topics include:
– precision bonding of optical elements
– requirements for optical adhesives
– microdispensing
– UV curing

After the opening keynote on »Precision Joining of Optical Elements by Adhesive Bonding«, held by Mr. Matthias Mohaupt, Research Fellow at “Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF”, Ms. Miwako Fujii, Assistant Manager at NTT Advanced Technology Corporation, will also give a keynote speech on requirements and a technical outline for optical adhesives from an industrial perspective.

Microdispensing of optical adhesives will be the topic of a talk by Mr. Kaoru Okuyama, Managing Director at Musashi Engineering Europe GmbH, who will provide an introduction to world of microdispensing technologies. And last but not least Mr. Romain Guillaume, Co-Founder of UWAVE, will shed some light on the transition of the UV curing process from lamp to LED. In his talk, he will provide a general picture of key principles and the radiometry behind UV-LEDs.
