Photonics West 2020

01/02/2020 09:00 - 06/02/2020 17:00 San Francisco, CA, USA

​Welcome to meet VTT experts at the leading event for worldwide photonics industry!

Photonics West is the world’s leading photonics technologies event that gathers over 22,000 people to learn, connect and find the latest research and products. The event takes place on 1-6 February 2020 in San Francisco, California.

In the event, you will get access to cutting-edge research in biophotonics, laser technologies, and optoelectronics materials and devices. You will also get new insights of the latest products and devices driving technology markets at the BiOS Expo and Photonics West Exhibition, featuring 1,400 companies, 50 industry events, and a Job Fair.

During the SPIE Photonics West we will be showcasing our latest advancements in hyperspectral imaging for space and consumer applications, optoelectronic wearables, panoramic thermal imaging and silicon photonics.

  • Finnish nanosatellites qualified in space equipped with the world´s smallest infrared hyperspectral camera. The groundbreaking infrared hyperspectral camera is smaller, lighter and cheaper and brings new possibilities to manage climate change.

  • Hand-held MEMS hyperspectral imager for VNIR mobile applications based on MEMS Fabry-Perot interferometer (MFPI) technology to enable food sensing, while utilizing low-cost camera technology to enable potential volume scalability for future sensing applications.

  • High Density Photonic Integrated circuits (PICs) for communication and sensing applications

Come and see our latest product demonstrators in action at the Photonics Finland Pavilion at the booth #5279, and discuss how we could help your business to take advantage of our groundbreaking technologies!
