Optical microtechnology is a booming field in different markets such as industrial, medical, automotive, consumer and mobile, and so there is no surprise that EPIC Meeting on Wafer Level Optics, hosted by SUSS MicroOptics in Neuchatel (Switzerland) brought together large number of companies and stakeholders covering the supply chain including end-users, fabrication techniques, materials and metrology. This meeting allowed the key players in wafer level microoptics to discuss the benefits and motivation of standards and potential collaborations to reinforce the industry and reduce fragmentation. Different applications were discussed such as CMOS image sensors, automotive, lighting, AR/VR headsets, datacom, consumer electronics etc.
This event provided a brilliant opportunity to introduce for the first time PHABULOµS pilot line for optical free-form micro-structures that will be developed and set-up during the H2020 project PHABULOµS starting from January 2020. The presentation was held by the project coordinator Rolando Ferrini (CSEM) and can be found here
