Photonics West 2018

27/01/2018 10:00 - 01/02/2018 16:00 San Francisco, USA

​VTT is present at Photonics West Exhibition in Photonics Finland Pavilion #4365

Every year over 20,000 attendees come to SPIE Photonics West to attend the world's largest photonics technologies event covering biophotonics for brain research and healthcare, lasers for research and advanced manufacturing, sensors and camera systems, imaging and displays, communications and optoelectronics, plus the core optical components that enable many of today's consumer products. And we will be there too!

During the SPIE Photonics West we will be showcasing our latest advancements in hyperspectral imaging, panoramic thermal imaging and silicon photonics.

Demos we're showcasing:

  • Single-piece 360 degree panoramic lens operating at thermal infrared wavelength regime to be used in thermal imaging of buildings in street view mode as well as in various safety and defense applications.
  • Hand-held MEMS hyperspectral imager for low-cost mobile hyperspectral application development in VNIR range. Solution utilizes mass producible MEMS Fabry-Perot tunable optical filter technology to enable volume scalability for future sensing applications.
  • World's first hyperspectral iPhone camera demonstrates that mass producible hyperspectral optical filtering technology is now also compatible with low-cost mobile phone optics and camera modules. Enabler for future consumer applications, like sensing and observation from vehicles and drones, health monitoring and food analysis.
  • Transceivers based on VCSELs, multi-core fibers and low-loss silicon photonics for optical interconnects at 850 nm and 1.3 µm wavelengths.


Come and see our latest product demonstrators in action, and discuss how we could help your business to take advantage of our groundbreaking technologies!
