Photonics West 2023

The annual US photonics show will have plenty on offer for industrial laser users from 28 January to 2 February

SPIE Photonics West 2023 is shaping up to include some of the most important research and training of our time for the optics and photonics industry. 

More than 18,000 registered attendees are expected, while more than 1,200 exhibitors fill the exhibition floor. Attendees have access to more than 100 conferences and 50 courses for an immersive experience. With hundreds of product launches and live demonstrations, as well as the staggering number of technologies on display, the two exhibitions offer a continuously active schedule. 

Quantum West has grown from an industry program to feature conferences dedicated to the advancement of Quantum 2.0 technologies—spotlighting quantum information systems, communications, computing and simulation, sensing, imaging, and timing systems, as well as materials, devices, and techniques. 

The expanding SPIE AR | VR | MR talks, demos, and exhibitors has grown into a separate, three-day event, continuing to collocate with Photonics West. Photonics West registration includes full access to SPIE AR | VR | MR.

For those of you looking to narrow down the laser processing firms you might wish to see this year, we recommend using the applications filter on the exhibitor page, which contains tags for laser cutting, welding, marking, drilling, surface treatment, micromachining, and general laser materials processing.  

For the curious minds of the manufacturing community looking to attend this year's LASE conference, we recommend starting your journey with this set of filters, which should direct you to the wide array of laser processing presentations lined up for this year.

The plenary event for LASE 2023 will see Eliana Fu of Trumpf explore how laser additive manufacturing can be used to address supply chain issues caused by a lack of materials, parts or skilled labour, while simultaneously helping firms reduce their carbon footprint.

Meanwhile, the rest of the conference will, as always, explore an extensive range laser materials processing topics.

This includes, for example:

And much, much more...

All this awaits you at Photonics West 2023 – We can't wait to see you there!
