European Conference on Integrated Optics 2017

The European Conference on Integrated Optics has now reached its 19th edition. Innovation and industry uptake is accelerating, and to capture this increasing pace, we are now transitioning to an annual event.

In 2017 we return to Eindhoven at the Science Park of the Technical University of Eindhoven. We will retain the same clear focus on leading edge research, providing a forum for experts from industry and academia to share the latest new thinking and exchange new insights and findings in the fields of integrated optics, optoelectronics and nanophotonics.

The conference scope extends from new enabling materials to the design and modelling of photonic structures, functions, devices and circuits. We also capture innovations in hybrid integration, system-on-chip and system-in-package integration. Application areas range from  optical tele- and data communications; optical interconnects, switching and storage; data and information processing, including integrated quantum circuits; and optical monitoring and sensing, including mid-IR photonics. Conference topics include for example:
