Thank you for joining us in San Diego where research was shared and latest advances were discussed

There was plenty to like at this important meeting, including over 2,000 presentations and the latest technical results within 48 conference topics. This was a great way to connect face-to-face for discussions about optical engineering and applications, nanotechnology, quantum science, and organic photonics.

Product requirements were discussed with top optics and photonics suppliers at the free 3-day exhibition. Industry partners were there to help solve problems, cut costs, and increase capabilities.

Mark your calendars for 2023 SPIE Optics + Photonics, to be held 20 - 24 August in sunny, San Diego.
