OIDA's Green Photonics Forum: Innovation and Opportunity
June 16-17, 2010 - Santa Clara, CA
OIDA's innovative green photonics forums have become a focal point for photonics and optics in the area of sustainability. This, their 3rd annual forum on green photonics, brings together key players involved in developing the technical, business, and government roles of photonics in building a more sustainable and renewable future. Efficiency, monitoring, and energy generation are areas where photonics technology will play a key role and the photonics industry will deliver solutions.
The goals of the forum are to provide valuable insights and identify specific challenges to overcome in order to accelerate the worldwide adoption of solid-state lighting and solar energy across a breadth of applications and to galvanize industry to realize the vision of creative and massive global energy savings and sustainable generation.
Topics for this 1½-day forum include:
- Solid state lighting, light sources, displays, and photovoltaics for energy efficiency
- Solar energy and other energy-creating devices/materials
- Complementary photonics sensing and manufacturing technologies
OIDA has an outstanding lineup of experts and leaders, invited expressly to explore the growing role of photonics in the sustainability portfolio, from market status and strategies to advanced materials and devices for next-generation products. They will share their knowledge and experiences during the regular sessions and plenary meetings, and during lunch, breaks, and an evening networking reception. This collaborative environment is ideal for exchanging ideas, meeting potential business partners, and productive discussions.
