October 4 – 7 , 2021 // Berlin-Adlershof | WISTA-Germany

In October this year, OpTecBB invites to the international innovation conference for the fourth time.

Photonics Days Berlin Brandenburg 2021 | October 4 – 7, 2021.

The aim of the conference is to connect participants from different industries, regions and countries to jointly enable new ways of cooperation and knowledge transfer and to jointly create innovations. Over four days in numerous online or hybrid sessions with leading national and international experts, participants can expect to hear the latest findings in the fields of photonics, optics, microsystems technology and quantum technology.

With the PolyPhotonics Berlin technology platform, a new technology has been developed in the recent past that is superior to established solution approaches in many respects. With a sustainable corporate vision of the polymer-based platform, further developments are initiated to apply the advanced integration technology also to new fields of application, e.g. in environmental or medical technology. In particular, the exploration of new wavelengths between 400 nm – 1650 nm and the interplay of polymer and silicon nitride based optical waveguides will enable hybrid photonic integration platforms. In this session, we will provide an overview of current platform capabilities and highlight recent developments in the technology to enable new applications in photonic sensing for environmental and healthcare applications.

The PolyPhotonics e.V. workshop will take place on 05.10.2021 at 15:00-18:00.

Within the workshop the association PolyPhotonics Berlin , represented by Crispin Zawadzki and Arne Schleunitz, will present the newly won project PolyChrome Berlin and its 12 alliance partners as well as invited speakers. The project had recently won the RUBIN funding program of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research in the amount of 2.9 million euros.

It is planned to hold the event in a hybrid format. You can expect two days in pure online format and two days with events in Berlin-Adlershof.

The program will be finalized by the end of June, but already now you can look forward to the following main topics:

Photonics for forestry and the wood industry | BioSensing with photonic integrated circuits | Quantum Technologies | PhotonHUB Europe | Photonic terahertz technology for beyond 5G wireless communication | Data center interconnects | German- Israeli nano photonics session in cooperation with NanoIL | Hyperspectral imaging | Optics for solar energy | PolyPhotonics Berlin | Laser Technology | Photonics for AgriFood applications | Sensor Al – a key for a new generation of sensor systems | Advanced UV technologies and applications | Microelectronics & Si-Photonics | Photonic integration as quantum enabling technology | Advances in optical metrology | Vision systems & IR detection for industry, security & defense | Photonics in Japan | Photonics in China | “Working in Photonics”.
