SPIE Photonics West 2015

HiLASE team took part in the #1 laser, photonics, and biomedical optics conference. SPIE Photonics West 2015: 20,000 attendees, two exhibitions, 1,250 exhibiting companies, and 4,700 papers. Topics included laser source engineering, nonlinear optics, semiconductor lasers and LEDs, laser manufacturing, laser micro-/nanoengineering, 3D fabrication, and more. The researchers  also visited EUVTech company which is the world’s leading manufacturer of metrology equipment for EUV lithography.
