Global photonics community sets sights on San Francisco for SPIE Photonics West 2017

SPIE Newsroom
15 December 2016

An international audience of more than 20,000 is set to make its annual visit to SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco next month, to see and hear the latest in inventive, life-enhancing new photonics technology applications.

Bruce Tromberg addresses the BiOS Hot Topics session in 2016

The capabilities to see more deeply into the living brain, print electronic sensors onto textiles, and use virtual reality to treat patients with post-traumatic stress disorder are representative of advances to be presented in technical conferences and showcased in major international exhibitions during the week.

The event will include more than 4,800 technical presentations, two major international exhibitions, an expanded industry program, professional development courses, and other activities. Dates are 28 January through 2 February at Moscone Center.
