If you're heading to SPIE Photonics West in a little over a week from today and need some guidance on navigating the exhibit floor, our product preview is a handy way to start.
One week after Super Bowl XLIX, SPIE Photonics West—North America's major optics and photonics conference and exhibition—will kick off (pun intended, of course), and it is expected to draw at least 20,000 attendees this year.

Happy New Year!

Heading to SPIE BiOS/Photonics West in February? Our annual preview article describes what you can expect to see.
Twenty-thousand photonics technologists and executives will unite at the 2015 SPIE Photonics West conference this February in San Francisco to explore, among many other things, how photonics could potentially improve, repair, and communicate with the brain using light.

Steerable optical beams aim to replace conventional home WiFi
While the introduction of radio-frequency (RF) wireless (WiFi) a number of years ago had the almost magical effect of eliminating the need for Ethernet cables to every single internet-connected device in the home, WiFi sometimes suffers from interference among devices, limited bandwidth, and limited RF spectrum.
