AIM Photonics Spring 2017 Meeting

03/30/2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Meeting at MIT March 30th for Companies Interested in the Transformative Field of Integrated Photonics

Interested in learning about business opportunities for your company in the emerging field of integrated photonics? Join us at MIT Thursday, March 30th for the second gathering of regional companies hosted by AIM Academy. Integrated photonics offers exciting solutions for data centers, and the automotive, medical, and sensor marketplaces, and will help capture global manufacturing leadership in a technology that is essential to the U.S. economy. The conference will address state and local government incentives and infrastructure, as well education and training that AIM Academy can offer. Large industry players will explain the holes in their supply chains that your companies might be able to fill. Speakers will discuss how companies in related fields – like optics, sensors, optical fiber, electronics, and cable – might expand into integrated photonics. AIM Academy is a public-private partnership created to bring cutting-edge knowledge on designing and manufacturing photonics integrated circuits into companies and classrooms.
