The topics include light propagation, refractive and reflective microoptics, compound and integrated free-space optics, plasmonics, and left-handed materials.
Microoptoelectromechanical systems (MOEMS) is not some special class of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) but in fact it is MEMS merged with microoptics which involves sensing or manipulating optical signals [1].
Hydrogels, both synthetic and natural, are highly biocompatible and can be used for scaffolds in many biomedical applications (13), microoptics (14), and drug delivery (15).
The largest among the projects is planned by PT Nippon Sheet Glass Microoptics Batam, wholly owned by NSG Micro Optics Singapore from Singapore.
Because this etching process can be done on a microscopic scale, one of its most promising applications is in microoptics, for creating large arrays consisting of thousands of tiny lenses, each as small as a micron in diameter.
The internationally renowned authors present different methods of lithographic and nonlithographic fabrication of microoptics and introduce the characterization and testing of microoptics.
There will also be an exhibition area to include Applied Precision; Coherent; EMD; Eppendorf; Hunt Optics and Imaging; Leica Microsystems; Mettler Toledo; MicroOptics Florida; Nikon; PerkinElmer; Prairie Technologies; and Zeiss.
In summary, many novel effects caused by femto second laser irradiation have been studied by the awardees, that open up promising new application for glasses in microoptics and photonics.
The lithography equipment to be installed at CNF includes two specialized mask aligner toolsets for the SUSS MA/BA6 aligner: Substrate Conformal Imprinting Lithography (SCIL), a technology developed by SUSS MicroTec in conjunction with Philips Research, that provides an inexpensive means of defining features of 10nm or less with high reproducibility by using a full-size imprint stamp and MO Exposure Optics, a patented technique developed by SUSS MicroTec's daughter company SUSS MicroOptics.
Valeo is just as proud of its BeaMatic and MicroOptics as Hella is of its VarioX and Light Curtain, for example; both techniques are used to create variable headlight beam distributions and radically designed, high-performance LED tail lamps, respectively, though the two makers' techniques and their visual results are quite different.
Many major economic anchors of the Southeastern Innovation Corridor will converge to present at the conference, including Michelin Americas Research and Development Corporation, Clemson International Center for Automotive Research, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Carolina MicroOptics Triangle, Savannah River National Laboratory and University of South Carolina.
