Technical Conference:
5-10 June 2016
CLEO: Expo
7-9 June 2016

CLEO: Applications & Technology

CLEO: Applications & Technology presents the latest advancements in applied optics and photonics and discusses how these technologies can be used in products.

This area of the conference is where innovative commercial technologies are demonstrated through new components, advanced processing technology and optoelectronic systems. Sessions may provide proof-of-concept prototypes, field trials and test data, and manufacturing advances in areas such as metrology, “green” technologies (LEDs and solar cells), biomedical applications, industrial instrumentation, and other end-user markets.

Core Applications & Technology Tracks include:

  1. Biomedical Applications
  2. Industrial Applications
  3. Photonic Instrumentation & Techniques for Metrology & Industrial Process
  4. Laser & Photonics Applications for Energy & Environment
