OIDA’s Green Photonics Forum: Innovation and Opportunity

For the third consecutive year, WRT Associates are assisting the Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA) with the planning and organization of their Green Photonics Forum.  Last year, OIDA’s innovative green photonics forum brought together many of the key players engaged in applying photonics solutions for global sustainability.  The upcoming 3rd annual forum on Green Photonics will provide a stage for an outstanding lineup of experts and leaders involved in defining the technical, business, and government roles that photonics will play in the drive for a more sustainable future.

The goals of the forum are to provide insights and identify specific challenges to overcome in order to accelerate the worldwide adoption of energy-efficient solid-state lighting and renewable solar energy sources.

The 1½-day forum will encompass several topics including:

  • Solid state lighting, light sources, and energy efficient displays
  • Photovoltaics and the role of solar energy
  • Green photonics sensing and manufacturing technologies

The speakers for the 3rd Annual Green Photonics Forum have been invited expressly to explore the growing role of photonics in the sustainability portfolio, from market status and strategies to advanced materials and devices for next-generation products. They will share their knowledge and experiences during the regular sessions and plenary meetings, and during lunch, breaks, and an evening networking reception.  Using last year’s event as a guide, this collaborative environment will be ideal for exchanging ideas, meeting potential business partners, and will lead to many productive discussions.  I will see you there.
