micro photonics 2016 Congress is chaired under the expert guidance of Professor Jürgen Popp, Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology e. V., Jena, Germany and Dr Henning Schröder, Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM, Berlin, Germany

Attendees will leave the Congress with a comprehensive update on the field and inspiration and ideas for future developments and collaborations.

Micro- & Nanophotonics

Laser technology is being more widely implemented in the field of microprocessing, where key criteria include not only the high power density of the radiation but also good focusability. Modern systems make precise sub-µm structuring possible. More design freedom and an increasingly wide range of available optical wavelengths enable cost-effective production methods. Integrated optics in silicon has become a major international technological driver of highly integrated photonic circuits suitable for mass production. At the same time, it places high demands on process engineering and interconnection technology. The latest results from European projects in the field offer an exciting overview.

In addition, applications in analytics and process control for medicine, biology and chemistry require sensors that combine fluid, optical and electrical functions. Integrated circuit packaging and new glass and polymer-based approaches to systems integration are seeking to achieve customized components, low-cost production and reliability.


  • New manufacturing technologies using laser technology
  • New components and micro-optical interconnection technologies for data communication based on silicon photonics
  • Integrated optical micro-systems for sensor technology
  • Scientific and economic impact of the topics


Participants can look forward to an exciting session, “Unmet medical needs”. The session is session to bridge the gap between users and developers of biophotonic technologies.

Further topics:

  • new imaging technologies with resolutions beyond the Abbe with the ability to distinguish quickly between diseased and healthy tissue
  • new analytical methods that can be used to quickly identify pathogenic germs or circulating cancer cells
  • optical fibers for use in analytics, spectroscopic and non-linear endoscopy

11 October 2016

The micro photonics 2016 Congress opens on October 11, 2016 with two topical and insightful plenary presentations which will set the tone for three days of exemplary scientific education, knowledge exchange and networking.

After the plenary presentations, attendees can choose between sessions in two parallel educational tracks, with one focused on micro and nano photonics and the other on biophotonics.

The theme of medical applications is addressed with a special session titled Unmet Medical Needs which is being developed and chaired by Prof. Ronald Sroka, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU), Germany, and Prof. Carsten Philipp, Evangelische Elisabeth Klinik Berlin, Germany.

Other sessions scheduled on the first day will cover the topics of Advanced Fabrication Technologies, Photonic Sensing and Medical Imaging with the day coming to a close with a Special Industry Forum bringing together industry leaders in the field. Oral presentations and a poster session will round out the full educational offering.

Networking opportunties will take place at the venue and also offsite during the congress, exhibition and the official.

12 October 2016

In addition to plenary presentations, a Poster Session and a Special Industry Forum, Wednesday will see two special Microphotonic Interconnects sessions dedicated to the European projects PhoxTrot and Rapido in addition to topical sessions on Laser Medicine and Life Science Applications.

The networking highlight of the Congress will take place on Wednesday evening, October 12 with the micro photonics Party at the historic Marshall Haus. Take the time to digest learning from the day and have some fun!

13 October 2016

The final day of the Congress, Thursday, October 13, will feature topics covering Optical Fibers and Integrated Waveguide Interconnects, Point-of-Care Applications, Novel Components and Medical Imaging.
