The field of Photonics is focused on developing novel devices, components, and sub-systems for controlling and using light, or more broadly electromagnetic radiation. A key aspect of photonics is the use of micro and nano structures as a means of achieving these technologies. These include photonic fibers, and on-chip or integrated photonic elements built in silicon or other substrate materials. Many companies and researchers are active in the development of micro/nano-enabled photon sources and optical elements for both generating and steering light all the way from the high energy X-ray regime through to the low energy THz portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. These core photonic materials/structures enable sub-systems and systems for a broadening application space.

This symposium is focused on novel photonic technologies and materials, and their use in the commercial space for various advanced applications. The symposium highlights industrial applications of photonics as well as emerging technologies within the research community that are poised to make the transition from the lab to applications. The event connects scientist and engineers around the country and world working in photonics or adjacent technologies for possible collaboration.
