Event Draws Optics and Photonics Industry Leaders


The premier event for optical engineers, designers and photonics is August 21 – 23 in San Diego California. The SPIE Optics and Photonics conference is the largest multidisciplinary optical sciences meeting in North America and of course, Accumold will come to flex our experience. See us at Booth 310!

The conference will center on nanotechnology, organic photonics and quantum science. Leaders representing these industries will be traveling from all over the world to discover new technologies to push manufacturing and find improved ways to preserve our environment, advance new photonics technologies, and collaborate on emerging optics applications.

Outside of the show floor where Accumold will be presenting microscopic injection molded components for the optics and photonics space, several educational sessions will also be available at the conference. In the nanoscience + engineering space, topics such as metamaterials, nanophotonic materials, plasmonics, quantum science and technology, nanomedicine, optical trapping, nanostructured devices, nanoengineering and nanoimag will be topics of discussion.

Organic Photonics will also be a point of focus, featuring technologies such as OLEDs, OFETS, OHPVs, perovskite PVs, organic and hybrid sensors, bioelectronics, liquid crystals, and molecular machines. In addition, Optical Engineering will be points of focus, within the arena of optical design and engineering, photonic devices and applications, x-ray, gamma-ray, and particle technologies.

There will be many interactive sessions as well including workshop sessions as well. Worth noting The Optics and Electro-Optics Standards Council (OEOSC) and the SPIE IR Materials Standards Working Group have combined their intellectual disciplines in the development of new infrared materials standards.

The Accredited Standards Committee for Optics (ASC-OP), which operates under the direction of the OEOSC also created a subcommittee named Task Force 6, Infrared Materials. The SPIE
created the Infrared Materials Working Group (IRMWG). They are both creating standards for infrared materials to be published as American National Standards. However, standards may influence future ISO standards as well.

Micro History on Accumold

Accumold has been a major player in the micro optics, optics and photonics space for many years and we are excited to connect and collaborate to this event once again. See you in San Diego!
