Many of the local photonics experts could be met at the Photonics Days Berlin Brandenburg on 17 and 18 October in Berlin Adlershof. More than 600 visitors from Germany and all over the world came to discuss topics from the full range of this key technology. The topics covered almost all areas of applied photonics, from spectroscopy and solar energy to sensors for autonomous driving and quantum technologies. Start-ups, small and large companies as well as many scientists from Germany, the USA, Japan, Brazil, Israel and many European countries took part.

The photonics industry in the capital region is developing excellently. Accordingly, Berlin is increasingly becoming a meeting place for photonics experts from all over the world. Carlos Lee, head of the European Photonics Industry Consortium EPIC, also sees it this way: “Berlin is the hub for photonics in Germany”, he says. After a start in spring 2018, he will hold his World Photonics Technology Summit 2019 again in Berlin.

The Photonics Days Berlin Brandenburg with about 160 lectures and 55 exhibitors was organized by OptecBB e.V. with the support of Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie GmbH, Wirtschaftsförderung Land Brandenburg GmbH and WISTA Management GmbH. The next Photonics Days are planned for the end of November 2019 in Potsdam.
