CLEO: Applications and Technology

Applications & Technology submission criteria

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.

Attend an outstanding technical program: In addition to an impressive list of invited speakers, Eric Betzig, Nobel Laureate Chemistry 2014, will speak at the Brain Imaging symposium and at the Plenary.  Steven Chu, Nobel Laureate Physics 1997, will join Eric Betzig and a number of laureates and luminaries as keynote speakers at the Plenary. Plus, new Topical Reviews have been added to the Applications & Technology program.


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
