PolyPhotonics Berlin – A technology platform for highly functional optical components

OCT 2018


Berlin, Germany

This year the workshop PolyPhotonics Berlin is part of the Photonik Days Berlin Brandenburg.

After the first implementation last year, the Photonic Days Berlin Brandenburg will offer the latest developments in the photonics industry in 2018. In addition to well-known exhibitors, colleges and universities are also represented at the two-day event in Berlin. A comprehensive and broad lecture and workshop program accompanies the offer of the Berliner Photonic Days. As part of the program, the workshop PolyPhotonics Berlin  – A technology platform for highly functional optical components – takes place. The latest innovation highlights regarding polymeric optical waveguide materials are presented and discussed here.
