SPIE Optics + Photonics opens next week…
On Sunday the SPIE Optics + Photonics (#SPIEOpticsPhotonics) begins. With world-class speakers presenting on the latest research, plus conferences on Nanoscience – with a special shout out for Optical Trapping and Optical Micromanipulation XVI, Organic Photonics, Electronics and Optical Engineering, it promises to be an exciting event.
The following Tuesday, a three day expo opens featuring over 150 exhibitors, a number of whom we distribute for here in the UK and Ireland. So, if you’re in San Diego next week, do drop by and say hello to our friends at these booths:
- #325 Micro Laser Systems, Inc. for collimators and laser beam expanders
- #432 OZ Optics Ltd. for fibre optics components and patchcords
- #620 nPoint, Inc. for piezo-driven nanopositioning flexure stages
- #623 Lake Shore Cryotronics for low temperature and magnetic field products
- #730 Siskiyou Corporation for mounts, stages, manipulators and more in opto-mechanics

Busy month for Optical Tweezers people
It’s been a busy month so far for our Optical Tweezers & Laser Trapping group, with over 50 research papers brought to the attention of the 500 plus members of the group on LinkedIn.
Meanwhile, it’s day 3 of the Optical Tweezers and Optical Manipulation conference (OTOM XV) taking place during SPIE’s Optics + Photonics conference and exhibition in San Diego.
Sessions and topics covered by leading researchers from around the world during this conference will include: Holography, Statistics, Detectors, Reactive Optical Matter, Optopfluidics, Microheology, Plasmonics, Micro-mechanics and more.

Next week: Optical Trapping and Optical Micromanipulation XI in San Diego
Next week, SPIE Optics + Photonics in San Diego will be hosting a conference stream entitled Optical Trapping and Optical Micromanipulation XI that runs from Sunday August 17th until the 21st.
There will be twenty sessions in total, chaired by two of the leading researchers in the field and both champions of Optical Tweezers: Kishan Dholakia of the University of St. Andrews, and Gabriel C. Spalding from the Illinois Wesleyan University. Topics covered will include:
- Toward (Or In) the Quantum Limit of Opto-Mechanics
- Beam Shaping and Aberration/Wavefront Correction
- Helicity and Optical Angular Momentum
- Optically Driven Microrheology and Mechanical Properties
- Using the Photonic Toolbox to Study Cells and Their Organelles
- Enhanced Sensitivity and Resolution of Optical Force Actuators
- Single-Molecule Manipulation and Study
- Photonic Devices for Optically Induced Forces
- Near-Field Micromanipulation, Plasmonic, and Nanoparticle Trapping
- Studies of Active Swimmers/Hydrodynamics
- Statistical Mechanics of Small Systems
- Optical Manipulation of Matter through Gaseous Media
- Optical Sorting, Optical Lab-on-a-Chip, and Microfluidics
- Optically Bound Matter
- Optofluidics and Optically Shaped Structures
- Optically Manipulated Robotics and Novel Samples
Although Elliot Scientific will not be exhibiting at this event, we would still like to wish all conference attendees a good week.
