SPIE Photonics West 2009
December 15, 2008

Photonics West, the essential photonics event in North America, will bring more than 17,500 of the world’s leading researchers and innovators to Silicon Valley for a week of technical sessions, special events, and innovation-rich exhibitions. The event will run from January 24-29, 2009 in the San Jose, CA (USA), Convention Center.

The Photonics West exhibition, North America’s largest optics and photonics exhibition, will include more than 1,100 companies showing components, systems, and applications for optics and photonics manufacturing, electronic imaging, IR sources and detectors, optical detectors, fibers and materials, cameras and displays, and other innovations. Dates for the Photonics West exhibition are January 27-29, 2009.

The weekend Biomedical Optics exhibition, the leading international exhibition in the field, will feature 135 companies showing components, sensors, instruments, and applications for molecular and spectroscopic/microscopic imaging, biomedical optics, and nano/biophotonics. Dates for the BiOS exhibition are January 24-25, 2009.

Both exhibitions are open to registrants at no charge, as are three executive panels and a Hot Markets session featuring top industry leaders discussing high-impact issues.

The inaugural Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation will be presented at Photonics West. Sponsored by the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) and Laurin Publishing, the Photonics Innovation awards will honor the best innovative products and processes that were brought to market between September 2007 and September 2008.

Conference proceedings papers will be published in the SPIE Digital Library as soon as they are approved beginning immediately after the event. See for more information, or access the SPIE Digital Library at
