    SPIE/COS Photonics Asia showcases the power of light and photonics technologies and applications. Photonics and optical science and engineering are becoming increasingly important as society gradually moves from electron-based technologies and industries to photon-based technologies and industries. Specifically, photonics is becoming increasingly important in health care and medicine, environment and energy, manufacturing, information systems and communications, defense and aerospace, entertainment, energy and green lighting, etc.

    Many Asian countries are investing heavily to transition from microelectronics-dominated industries to photonics-based ones. Asian economies are becoming more and more important to the health of the global economy in the 21st century, and Asian Photonics markets are expanding rapidly.

    Photonics Asia is an important event for members of the global photonics community who need to keep up with what is happening in the Asian photonics industry and develop new partnerships and new markets. This meeting provides a unique forum for reporting and reviewing photonics and optoelectronics disciplines ranging from material and devices to advanced systems and applications. Cutting-edge technologies, product announcements and demonstrations, market analysis and investment opportunities are discussed in various conference sections and in the product exhibition.
