International Year of Light--Wuhan Photonics Week 2015

13th – 19th, June 2015

The United Nations (UN) General Assembly proclaimed 2015 as the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015). To celebrate the event, with the support from many world known scientific societies and unions, including International Commission for Optics (ICO), the Optical Society (OSA), the international Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), IEEE Photonics Society (Singapore and Hongkong Chapters), Institute of Physics (IOP), Laser Institute of America (LIA) and Chinese Optical Society (COS), Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics (WNLO) launches Wuhan Photonics Week.

International conference:

The 8th International Photonics and OptoElectronics Meetings (POEM 2015)

 16th–19th, June 2015

POEM 2015 features two OSA Topic Meetings: Optoelectronic Devices and Integration (OEDI) and Photonics for Energy (PFE). OEDI topics include silicon photonics, surface plasma and plasmonics, optoelectronic devices, nonlinear optical devices, polymer devices, radio over fiber related devices, free-space communications related devices, optoelectronic monolithic integration and hybrid integration, and optical vortex devices and subsystems. PFE covers such topics as energy generation (mesoscopic, organic, quantum dot and thin film solar cells, nanogenerators), energy conversion (inorganic/organic light emitting diodes, piezo-phototronics) and energy storage.

   Student activity

First Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition of WNLO

13th–19th, June 2015

The objective of this activity is to guide and inspire students to combine the knowledge they have learned in class with the reality of society, to help them pursuing innovation, creation and imagination. The competition consists of a preliminary and a final: in preliminary, participants are supposed to provide a work (i) The academic thesis of natural science class or (ii) The invention of production technology; after evaluation, winners will take part in the finals during 13th to 19th June, 2015.

Exhibit at Wuhan Photonics Week

15th–17th, June 2015

Wuhan Photonics Week presents to our industry partners a collection of meetings (like POEM-OSA Topical Meetings) that are unmatched in quality. They are held in National Lab or hotel instead of large, impersonal exhibit halls. Exhibitors and sponsors find that the smaller size can often yield big returns in terms of qualified sales leads. The highly-targeted audience is receptive to your marketing and sales message; and with fewer exhibits, it is easier to have substantive discussions about product needs and capabilities. Add to that the ability to participate in social events with attendees, and you will find the exhibit experience is enhanced even more.
