OCLA Symposium

Donnerstag/Thursday, 12.04.2018, Buchs SG

Optical Coatings for Laser Applications 2018

Joint event of NTB, RhySearch, EOS and Swissphotonics

We are pleased to announce that the Symposium on Optical Coatings for Laser Applications OCLA will be organized for a fourth time at the Campus of NTB Interstate University of Applied Sciences of Technology in Buchs, Switzerland.
As in the previous years, presentations by highly reputed speakers in the fields of optical coatings, laser technology and LIDT measurement will be held.
The event presents an excellent opportunity for furthering communication and networking between multidisciplinary industry and research groups.
As joint Organizing Comittee, RhySearch, NTB, Swissphotonics and the European Optical Society EOS look forward to welcoming you in Buchs SG.

  • Optical coatings for laser applications
  • Laser technology and applications
  • Metrology for characterising high-end optical coatings and substrates
  • Low loss optical coatings

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