PHOTOPTICS 2020 will be held in conjunction with SENSORNETS 2020 and VISIGRAPP 2020.
Registration to PHOTOPTICS allows free access to the SENSORNETS and VISIGRAPP conferences (as a non-speaker).

Optical systems are ubiquitous in modern society, with an ever-increasing number of applications covering medical sciences (vision technologies, surgical instrumentation, medical imaging), spatial exploration (telescopes, lenses, spectrometers), telecommunications (fiber optics), information processing (quantum computing), industry (from cutting, welding to precision metrology) and military/weaponry technology, to name but a few examples. Furthermore, laser and optical technology are in general absolutely essential to performing applied research in areas such as chemistry and biology, providing fundamental analysis tools. The success of optical systems and technologies in high-end scientific research has also found its way into everyday consumer products such as printers, displays, discs, cameras and eyeglasses, not to forget that optical fiber is crucial to telecommunications in general and internet in particular. This 8th edition of PHOTOPTICS will feature three different tracks on Optics, Photonics and Lasers, covering both theoretical and practical aspects.

Photonics publishes high impact fundamental
research but also applications of optics and
photonics. The journal particularly welcomes
both theoretical (simulation) and experimental
research and is covered by the Science Citation
Index Expanded (SCIE - Web of Science), Inspec
(IET), as well as Scopus CiteScore 2.16.
This Special Issue will publish several selected
best papers from this event.
