Workshop: Optical Coatings for Laser Applications 2016

Donnerstag/Thursday, 09.06.2016,

Joint Workshop of NTB, RhySearch, EOS and Swissphotonics


After the success of the 2015 Workshop on Optical Coatings for Laser Applications, the workshop will again be held in 2016 at the NTB in Buchs on the 9th of June. As last year, presentations by highly reputed speakers in the fields of optical coatings, laser technology and LIDT measurement will again be held. The workshop also offers the opportunity for furthering communication and networking between industry and research groups.

Target public
The workshop is geared towards technically interested engineers and scientists working with laser optics, high-end optical thin film deposition and characterization.
