Precision Photonic Systems ‘24

Located in Switzerland's «Photonik Valley», this conference focuses on application-oriented research and brings together researchers from the fields of photonics, microtechnology and electronics.

Precision Photonic Systems ‘24

This science application-oriented conference – positioned in the center of the “Photonics Valley” in Switzerland - aims to bring together scientists from photonics, microtechnology and electronics. The conference is accompanied by a tabletop industry exhibition. Additionally, a photonics branch meeting will support networking between industry and academia. An evening event at the end of the first day will allow, to meet colleges and friends, deepen existing contacts and make new contacts.

Call for Papers
The conference will be organized in sessions. Each session will be introduced by a keynote presentation of high-level speakers from their field. This call for paper gives opportunity to scientists and researchers to present their own presentations (20 min incl. discussion) and exchange their ideas with experts from industry and academia.

Become part of the expert community for photonics and microtechnology and submit a half-page abstract here by June 30, 2024.

The conference will be organized by OST Ostschweizer Fachhochschule Campus Buchs and Switzerland Innovation Park Ost and can be reached easily by train from Zürich airport or main station (5/4 hours drive).

The topics cover future oriented aspects in modern photonic systems:

  • Photonic sensors and systems for industry and health 
  • Miniaturized photonic systems for industrial applications: Design, manufacturing and testing
  • Micro-optical elements: Design, fabrication, application
  • Innovative manufacturing technologies for optical elements and photonic systems
  • Electronics and signal processing for photonic systems
  • Integrated electro-optical systems
  • Photonic systems for quantum applications and quantum sensors
  • Ultra-precision and nano-measurement technology

Keynote Speakers



Presented papers will be published as extended 2-page abstracts and indexed by Google Scholar.

Industry Exhibition
The conference will be accompanied by a tabletop exhibition of relevant companies from photonics, microtechnology and electronics. An exchange between industry and academia will be stimulated during the conference.

Social program:
Lunch meals and refreshments are offered. On the first evening, participants are invited to a social evening.

Application for presentation
Please submit a ½ page abstract to the program committee. Papers will be selected by the program committee and the principal author will be informed. In case of acceptance, the author is obliged to submit an extended 2 page abstract for oral presentation.
