Optical components are crucial for laser performance and form a foundation for advances in laser science and technology. All around the globe, vast and constantly growing research efforts are dedicated to developing new and more advanced laser components and systems. Along this line, packaging solutions for optical components enable their most efficient and consistent integration in laser systems. Laser component packaging is decisive for stable and reliable laser operations while not only improving laser characteristics but also enabling broader laser usability and applications.

This conference is dedicated to recent achievements and progress made in the field of optical components for lasers and laser systems as well as laser packaging solutions. A wide range of topics covers a variety of laser components and packaging technologies for semiconductor lasers, solid state lasers, fiber lasers, gas lasers, CW and pulsed lasers, ultra-short pulsed lasers, and others.
