How to Select the Right Detector Technology for your Application
Date: Monday 30 January 2017
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: South Exhibit Level, Room 102
The selection process of the best-performing photodetector for a given application can be a source of frustration and inefficiency. However, it doesn’t have to be. Good familiarity with the available photodetector choices, which encompasses understanding their principles of operation, regimes of operation, and limits of operation, can make the process remarkably simple. The talk discusses the basics of photodetectors and how to select the correct one under different circumstances.

The goal of this presentation is to provide background information on four types of photodetectors:
• Photomultiplier Tube
• Photodiode
• Avalanche Photodiodes
• Silicon Photomultiplier

Target Audience
Design/system engineers, managers, directors, university researchers and contractors who are involved with design of any system using any type of photodetectors.

The Solid State Lighting Revolution: Technologies That Will Shape the Future of Lighting
Date: Tuesday 31 January 2017
Time: 8:15 AM - 9:45 AM
Location: South Exhibit Level, Room 103
The worldwide $80 billion lighting market is undergoing a transformation of a magnitude not seen since the invention of the incandescent lamp. LED technology has reached a level of cost and performance such that nearly all the lighting applications formerly served by conventional light sources (for example incandescent, fluorescent and HID lamps) can now be addressed by LEDs, from flashlights to roadway lights. Although energy efficiency has been the main driver for this transformation, other factors, such as light quality and controllability, are now becoming important.

This panel of experts will provide insights on the technologies that will influence the next wave of the solid-state lighting transformation, from sources to optical systems.

Advice on Navigating the Tides and Storms of Shifting International Waters

The goal is not to debate or guess at public policy, but to address what should a CEO, board, and senior executives in photonics firms, in various major photonics center locations, be doing over the next 1-2 years to deal with possible impacts. What geographic centers are going to gain strength and what might lose position? What are the possible impacts/threats/opportunities that are coming — and do you take a proactive approach or reactive (it feeds into topics such as employee management, incentives, locations to consider, M&A and investment scenarios).

What’s changing in government R&D and commercial support in key places—and how does a local or foreign firm take advantage of program funding opportunities? How are money flows for investment going to change—for innovation hubs, for where to staff up, for where to get expansion capital from?

3D Printing: New Challenges and Opportunities
Date: Wednesday 1 February 2017
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: South Exhibit Level, Room 103
Market analysts valued the global 3D printing market at $2.3B in 2013 and are projecting global revenues of $8.6B by 2020—an impressive compound annual growth rate of more than 20% over seven years! At the same time, Siemens estimates that 3D printing will become 50% less expensive and 400% faster over the next five years.

However, 3D printing can only reach its economic potential and fulfill its promise of revolutionizing manufacturing across multiple industries if a number of significant real-world structural challenges are addressed. Hurdles to widespread implementation of 3D printing include implementation of a proper regulatory framework, provisions to protect intellectual property, and establishment of appropriate standards and certification, to name a few.

Join us for a panel discussion about these hurdles and how they might be overcome.

Background
Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) advise the Department of Commerce on the technical parameters for export controls applicable to dual-use commodities and technology and on the administration of those controls. The TACs are composed of representatives from industry and Government representing diverse points of view on the concerns of the exporting community. Industry representatives are selected from firms producing a broad range of goods, technologies, and software presently controlled for national security, foreign policy, nonproliferation, and short supply reasons or that are proposed for such controls, balanced to the extent possible among large and small firms.

TAC members are appointed by the Secretary of Commerce and serve terms of not more than four consecutive years. The membership reflects the Department's commitment to attaining balance and diversity. TAC members must obtain secret-level clearances prior to appointment. These clearances are necessary so that members can be permitted access to relevant classified information needed in formulating recommendations to the Department of Commerce. Each TAC meets approximately four times per year. Members of the TACs are not compensated for their services.
