SPIE Advanced Photonics event to showcase latest advances in photonics research

Date Announced: 14 Dec 2020

Free online event, hosted by SPIE and Chinese Laser Press, will present a comprehensive range of photonics-related technology and applications.

Advanced Photonics event to showcase latest advances in photonics research

BELLINGHAM, Washington, USA — On 12-14 January 2021, SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and the Chinese Laser Press will host a colloquium sponsored by their co-published journal Advanced Photonics. The six 90-minute interactive events will be moderated by the journal's associate editors and will cover new research and innovations in nanophotonics, imaging, quantum research, and metalenses. Registration for the events is free and open to the public.

The sessions will be streamed in time zones convenient to anyone in the world, and recordings of the individual sessions — each of which will include interactive Q&A time — will be available at a later date via the Advanced Photonics Colloquium webpage.
