Frontiers in Optics + Laser Science 2023

October 9 - 12, 2023


About the Conference

Optica (formerly OSA), in partnership with the American Physical Society’s Division of Laser Science (DLS), present Frontiers in Optics + Laser Science. The conference, which also serves as the Optica Annual Meeting, unites communities from both societies for comprehensive and current research in a diverse collection of optics and photonics topics and across the disciplines of physics, biology and chemistry. FIO LS provides attendees from around the world with the opportunity to network, present, learn and connect. We hope to see you at the 2023 conference in October.



The conference will be presented as an in-person event. However, a limited quantity of contributed talks will be pre-recorded for asynchronous, on-demand viewing during and after the conference week.



For the past few years, FiO LS has partnered with other Optica events to supplement and broaden the technical content of the conference. In 2023, the Optica Laser Congress will be co-located with FiO LS. Registrants can freely access technical sessions and other programs offered from both events. In addition, a combined exhibition will bring even more companies to the Science & Industry Showcase.


Conference Themes

The Technical Conference is organized around three themes that leverage the intersection between science and applications — the end result is intended to illustrate the research within the technology. The themes provide opportunities for focused, deep-dives into the most compelling and promising technologies of tomorrow. Each theme includes an all-invited program of panel discussions and is anchored by a 45-minute talk offered by a visionary speaker. The 2023 theme program addresses:


Visionary Speakers

These speakers are individuals who come from within and beyond the optics and photonics community — each equipped to provide insight into cutting-edge advances related to the three conference themes.


Science & Industry Showcase

The technical content is complemented by the Science & Industry Showcase, an exhibition with leading optics companies, technology product demonstrations and industry-focused show floor programs. In addition, we expect upwards of 500 posters presented over multiple poster sessions.
