Open lecture serie: Photonics applications 28.10.-17.12.2019

Popular course about applications of photonics starts soon!

Course teach how photonics applications are solving various tasks and problems in, e.g., industry, medicine and consumer applications. The most important applications today and in the future. Join to understand various applications of photonics from practical perspective presented by companies themselves and of course to network!

Companies which are presenting their photonics applications: Arbonaut, Timegate, Senop, Oplatek, Seetrue, Nanocomp, Ecoaims, Dispelix, Finnlitho, Karelia, Softcolor and Business Joensuu. More companies coming.

Applications which are presented during the course: Lidar, AR-display, Laser gun, X-ray optics, Printable optics, Flat displays, Optical fiber, Optics assembly and packaging, Eye tracking, Military optics, Photo editing and photography, Spectral imaging, Injection molded optics, Diamond turned optics, Augmented reality and virtual reality
