Optical Engineering & Design

Wednesday 11th October 2017

A little background for you:

Optical designers are working with more and more challenging projects and need to bring into their designs more elements, different materials and more difficult calculations/considerations.

At this meeting we hear presentations on subjects of relevance to users of photonics technologies and designers of components, instruments and systems.

Subjects to be covered include: designing of imaging systems, lenses, luminaires and lighting. Cameras, communications, energy, lasers, MEMS, microscopy, mirrors, nano-science, photovoltaic systems, sensing systems, telescopes, and more…


It is free to attend this meeting and the rest of the conference. Registration gives you full access to two exhibitions, Photonex and Vacuum Expo, as well.

Other meetings you may like to know about:

Thursday: Optical Metrology for manufacturing


The OED meeting finishes with a Special Workshop:

Simulating Photonics with COMSOL Multiphysics®

In this workshop COMSOL will discuss using their COMSOL Multiphysics® software for photonics simulations; in particular, periodic structures and crystals. They will show how modelling can provide insight into the design and characterisation of photonic devices. This includes solving for the propagation of electromagnetic waves, even in the presence of wavelength-dependent material properties, as well as multiphysics effects like heating or mechanical loading.

What to do next:

  • Send this information to colleagues and associates who may be interested
  • Register yourself to attend this meeting - register

The technical programme will be available nearer the time on the website. The meeting programme will be prepared to allow all delegates sufficient time to visit the exhibition.

The 2017 Conference and Industry Programme, run by Enlighten Meetings with its partners, covers application and technology advances, innovations and emerging technologies.
