SPIE Photonics West 2023 will be bringing together researchers, innovators, engineers, and business leaders from across the globe for a dynamic and engaging week of networking and learning. Registration is now open.

Photonics West will showcase the latest technologies and discoveries using optics and photonics, with four major application topics: BiOS, highlighting new research in biophotonics, biomedical optics, and imaging; LASE, with its focus on the laser industry and applications; OPTO, covering optoelectronics, photonic materials, and optical devices, and Quantum West, featuring technical conferences, a quantum-specific plenary session, and presentations from industry leaders who are moving quantum technologies to market. Overall, this year's Photonics West program includes more than 4,500 technical presentations.

Featuring over 1,000 companies with product launches, live demonstrations, and technologies on display, the BiOS Expo and Photonics West Exhibition showcase the diverse and healthy photonics industry. The BiOS Expo, featuring the latest technology in biomedical optics and healthcare applications, runs 28 – 29 January; the Photonics West Exhibition, 31 January to 2 February, showcases the latest from laser manufacturers and suppliers as well as other innovative optics and photonics devices, components, systems, and services. Both exhibitions are free to attend.

From the BiOS Hot Topics and conference plenary sessions, to the Prism Awards and the SPIE Startup Challenge, the event-filled week will showcase the latest technologies and industry developments across the optics and photonics spectrum. Confirmed Hot Topics and plenary speakers include Aydogan Ozcan, University of California, Los Angeles; Mark A. Anastasio, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; Maryellen Giger, University of Chicago; Natan T. Shaked, Tel Aviv University; Chen Yang, Boston University; Vasilis Ntziachristos, Technical University of Munich; Srirang Manohar, University of Twente; Caroline Boudoux, Polytechnique Montréal; Jin U. Kang, Johns Hopkins University; Kirill Larin, University of Houston; YongKeun Park, KAIST; Eric Henderson, Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center; Rajeev J. Ram, MIT; Emily Warren, National Renewable Energy Laboratory; Nicolas Grandjean, EPFL; Arnan Mitchell, RMIT University; Eliana Fu, Trumpf North America; Jason Eichenholz, Luminar Technologies; and Jürgen Stuhler, Toptica Photonics.

An educational program of more than 50 technical courses complements numerous professional development workshops, a comprehensive job fair, and valuable networking opportunities for technical attendees, SPIE members, and exhibitors.

Included with full conference registration for Photonics West is access to the three-day SPIE AR|VR|MR event, which focuses on augmented, virtual, and mixed reality and the vital role that optics and photonics play in cross-reality (XR) hardware development. The program incorporates over thirty invited industry talks, keynotes, and panels; a two-day exhibition; and an XR-specific job fair. Invited speakers include Avegant, Lynx, NewSight Reality, Mojo Vision, Schott, Magic Leap, Metalenz, and Sunny Optical.

“We are very excited to again be hosting Photonics West in person, kicking off the calendar year for the global photonics community,” notes SPIE senior director of technical programs Marilyn Gorsuch. “Since our successful return to San Francisco last year, we've consistently heard from our community about the importance and value of reconnecting and having face-to-face conversations. Photonics West 2023 promises to be another engaging and thought-provoking week with many networking opportunities planned to complement the strong technical program. This year we will also offer an expanded Quantum West program and a new focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning for biomedical applications. Don’t miss this opportunity to join your colleagues from around the world, engage with more than 1,000 photonics companies, and hear the latest research results that drive innovation.”
