Symposium succesfully kicks off DSPE Optics and Optomechatronics Week 2015

28 September 2015 - 2 October 2015

Optomechatronics is an important discipline for the precision engineering and high-tech systems industry and “it’s very much alive and exciting”. That conclusion was drawn at the end of the DSPE Optics and Optomechatronics Symposium 2015 by chairman of the day, Jos Benschop, Senior Vice President Technology at ASML. The Symposium kicked off the first Optics and Optomechatronics Week, from 28 September to 2 October 2015, at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands. The week, which featured a unique collaboration between Dutch and international organisations, comprises a symposium and two courses. The week brought together outstanding speakers and lecturers from semicon to medical, from industry to academia, from Europe and abroad, presenting the latest trends and high-tech details.
