Photonics West, the leading event for the photonics and laser communities

Make your plans to joins us 6 - 11 March 2021
Attend Photonics West 2021, the premier laser, photonics, biomedical optics event. SPIE Photonics West covers a wide range of topics: biomedical optics, biophotonics, industrial lasers, optoelectronics, microfabrication, MOEMS-MEMS, displays, and more.

The March 2021 dates provide more space at The Moscone Center to accommodate the program and the exhibition as we implement new health and safety guidelines and requirements.
