Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2020

The production of optical components and systems is subject to high accuracy requirements. In order to make production precise and efficient, high levels of material and process knowledge are required. This applies to the actual molding process and the upstream and downstream process steps in the entire process chain. The conference Aachen Polymer Optics Days deals with all relevant issues in optical polymer manufacturing – from material selection, replication to metrological characterization and the optical system.

The focus of this year’s conference will be on:
• Materials in optics manufacturing
• Tool and mold making for optical applications
• Injection molded optics
• Metrology and optical systems

The Aachen Polymer Optics Days 2020 provide an excellent networking platform for visitors from industry and research who are interested in participating in a lively exchange of ideas and opinions relating to manufacturing options and potential applications for optical plastic products. The papers presented by experts in their respective subject areas will outline the current developments and trends from a production-oriented point of view, highlighting application-related aspects.

Seize the opportunity offered by this conference as a prestigious industry event to swap ideas with other experts!

In addition to the lecture programme, an accompanying company exhibition as well as a shop floor tour at the hosting research institutes will be offered. On the eve of the first day of the event, there will also be an industrial pitch session moderated by the EPIC photonics consortium.
