The keynote address titled ‘Market growth and Hot Topics in Optics and Photonics’ will be delivered by Tom Hausken Ph.D., Senior Industry Advisor at the Optical Society of America OSA. Dr. Hausken will feature some recent findings on the optics and photonics market.  He will also offer some ways to understand which opportunities are hot and which are not in the optics and photonics market today.

One of the highlights of this event is the annual student poster contest which challenges students to summarize and present their research to a panel of judges. Students are judged on their ability to describe their research to someone outside their specific area of research.

Finally, the CPIA will present the award for “Colorado Photonics Company of the Year” to a Colorado photonics company that has achieved distinction in the industry. This award is presented annually to honor the success and contribution of photonics to the Colorado economy.

The Colorado Photonics Industry Association annual meeting takes the place of the Association’s fall quarterly meeting and will be held on the University of Colorado, Boulder campus. Attend the annual meeting on October 18th from 2:30- 6 pm at the University Memorial Center, 1669 Euclid, Boulder, CO. Visit the CPIA events page for more information or to register.
