Pre-Workshop description
CTI's mission it to support Swiss companies wanting to turn their idea into marketable products in order to be competitive on the international market. These projects must present a scientific challenge and must therefore be developed in collaboration with a research laboratory. The CTI will pay the research part of the project. There are unfortunately some pitfalls to be avoided when writing the CTI application. The purpose of this workshop is to go through the application with you and show you how and where you must show that your project meets the three mandatory requirements: innovation, market and scientific challenge. 
The participants can prepare questions (in english or french) for Dr. Catherine Jean by email or at the workshop.

Workshop description
Over the past two decades, a variety of technologies have been developed for precise spatial and temporal control of phase and amplitude in optical systems, including liquid crystal, MEMS or deformable mirror based systems. Such Spatial Light Modulator SLM technologies have recently reached a level of maturity that they are currently being introduced in new product lines, and at the same time allow quite exciting novel research directions. The aim of this workshop is to bring together key players in industry and academia developing technologies and applications of spatial light modulators in order to enable new product and novel research developments.
