Photonics Applications Week 2019 – Program

Photonics Applications Week 2019 is an umbrella event focused on real-life applications of photonics.


September 30

The Internet of Things and Li-Fi Event (09:30 – 17:00) is about how Li−Fi enables IoT in providing networked mobile communication using the light. Optical Wireless Communication (OWC) is very well positioned to provide high speed, latency-free communication for these applications. By networking multiple OWC-enabled access points, one can build a new mobile communication system integrated with lighting. At the moment, first generations of of Li-Fi system, based on visible or InfraRed LEDs are rolled out, based on the new ITU standard, but the potential for OWC goes much further.

DSPE Optics and Optomechanics SYMPOSIUM + FAIR + Demonstrations. We would like to invite you for the 4th edition of the Optics Week. In 2013 the first bi-annual Optics and Optomechanics event took place Eindhoven. In 2015 Delft was the location and 2017 in Aachen. This 2019 event in Eindhoven brings you outstanding speakers and lecturers from semicon to medical, from industry to academia, from Europe and abroad, teaching you about the details and latest trends in opto- and optomechanics.

October 1

Photonic Integration Conference (09:30 – 17:00) This one-day executive conference (5th edition) explains why integrated photonics is vital to keep our world communicating and connected in the 21st century.
We’re bringing the global experts to Eindhoven. October 1 2019, High Tech Campus Eindhoven. Read more and register here


Networking dinner at Kazerne, Eindhoven (19:00 – 22:00). The networking dinner for the Photonics Applications Week 2019 will take place on October 1 at the Kazerne, Eindhoven. Meeting each other in a more relaxed creative environment is as important as well. During drinks and a dinner other topics will pass. Socialising is of paramount importance. That it the reason why the Photonics Applications Week team will organise the Networking dinner. Not in a standard environment, but in the Kazerne in the center of Eindhoven. Kazerne offers a mix of restaurant, gallery, hotel and lab. The dinner is on your own account. Click here for more information and registration.

Agrifood Photonics Workshop (09:30 – 17:00) Foodtech Brainport and ZLTO will organise an event where the Agrifood Industry and Photonics Industry will meet and discuss the needs from the Agrifood professionals. Further information will follow soon


October 1 – October 3

Course Optomechanical System Design. The teachers will guide you through the diverse landscape of optomechanical system design. They will begin with the basics and show approaches and solutions for many design issues along the way. Together they draw upon more than 100 years of experience in this field at Dutch universities and research institutes and in the high-tech industry. In the curriculum a wide variety of design examples are used, focusing on the lessons of failure. Read more


October 2

The Automotive Photonics Conference (09:30 – 17:00) is about photonics-based developments – in all areas: from powertrain, through lighting to driver assistance and vision systems. During the event several presentations will be held about photonics in automotive, ranging from Lidar to solar panels and Terahertz wireless Communications. Read more and register here


October 3

Workshop How photonics helps to improve Health. During this workshop an overview is given on what photonics, as the technology of using light, does and can do for current and future applications in health. If you are an SME or large industrial organization, this workshop gives you insight in the possibilities of photonics as well as guidelines on how and where to start. Read more and register here
