We invite you to Optical Fiber Technology Industry Session held on April 22 within SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics digital forum, the largest event in optics and photonics field in the Czech Republic.

The SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics symposium, the largest event in optics and photonics field in the Czech Republic, is held only online for the first time this year due to the epidemiological situation, on April 19 - 23. In addition to our institute, other institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences and members of the Czech Optical Cluster, such as the Institute of Physics of the CAS, Palacký University in Olomouc and Czech Technical University in Prague, also participate in the organization of this digital forum.

Even if you only connect remotely this year, it still has one advantage. You can also watch lectures and workshops from the recording and you are not bound by the exact time of the event.


Connect April 22: Optical Fiber Technology Industry Session

Optical Fiber Technology Industry Sessions focus on advanced fabrication methods of optical fibers and optical fiber components, and contains a series of tutorial and invited lectures:

Optical Fiber Technology - part I (12:00 - 14:00 CEST):

  • Fabrication technology for specialty silica optical fiber using MCVD process, Senior Scientist, Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute (CSIR–CGCRI), India
  • Prospects for development of nanostructured free-form optical fibers, Ryszard Buczynski, Institute of Microelectronics and Photonics, and Univ. of Warsaw, Poland

👉 details (time schedule, abstracts)


Optical Fiber Technology - part II (15:00 - 17:00 CEST):

  • Current trends in optical fibers, Deputy Head of the Institute of Photonics and Electronics, Czech Academy of Sciences, Czech Republic
  • Biomedical applications of optical fibers and fiber sensors, President, MCH Engineering LLC, United States

👉 details (time schedule, abstracts)


Lectures are in English. Workshop is free, but participation in the entire symposium is available only with registration fee. The entire program of the SPIE Optics + Optoelectronices 2021 digital forum can be found here.

The workshop is organized by the Fiber Lasers and Non-linear Optics research team of IPE. As part of the Optical Fiber Technology presentation series, the Institute of Photonics and Electronics offers an opportunity to explore the laboratory for fabrication of specialty optical fibres via a virtual tour. Further discussion about specialty optical fibers is also available at the conference Microstructured and specialty optical fibers, part of the Optics+Optoelectronics Digital Forum.

We are looking forward to your participation!
