Israeli-Dutch Innovation Center

#7 NL-IL Mini-Symposium on Photonics (22 Apr)

The goal is to provide a platform to discuss the recent progress on photonic integration technology along the complete value chain from integration platforms: over design and packaging to fabrication and applications enabled by photonic integration. Furthermore, by exchanging knowledge and connecting the different players, cooperation will be stimulated and new contacts and ideas for future breakthroughs will be fostered.
