The event brings together a trade show and a congress, which cover all trends of development and implementation of today's photonics. It gives you a unique opportunity to see the best developments of laser optical and optoelectronic equipment available on the Russian market and get first-hand detailed advice on its capabilities and prospects. Developers of this technology can meet here with scientists conducting applied research on topics that promise new materials, new techniques, and a new idea and element base for tomorrow's photonics.

Show highlights

This year, more than 100 companies are taking part in Photonics, including leading laser and optical products manufacturers, dealers of major companies, research institutes, and leading educational institutions in Russia and other countries.

Several companies will show new products. 

Polarus will introduce picosecond fibre lasers that are suitable for machining various materials and for microelectronics. They can be used for scribing, cutting, engraving, drilling and other tasks, including micromachining silicon, semiconductors and ceramics.

Astrohn will present a matrix photodetector module based on a cantilever pit. The distinctive features of this class of devices include high photo sensitivity and low noise levels.

MacroOptica will show high-precision optical elements made of coated optical glass and crystals, examples of metalworking components, opto-mechanical systems as well as opto-electronic systems for non-contact measurement of body temperature in passing people. 

Macro Group will showcase laboratory equipment (optomechanics, optics, laser crystals), various fibre optic components, laser sources, and semiconductor materials.

Plant Optic will introduce optical parts, fibre optic products, laser active elements made of KGW and KYW single crystals.

ETM Photonics, the shows newcomer, will present the latest technologies and equipment for photonics research.

Gpixel will showcase the following products: the GSENSE series of sensors, the GMAX line of framing shutter sensors, including the world's smallest pixel, and high-resolution framing shutter devices, the new GCINE series, a unique multi-layer sensor for scientific applications, cinematography, professional photography and aerial photography.

Industry professionals will see the equipment in action, learn about new technologies and receive detailed advice. Technicians and brand managers will be on hand to discuss technical and commercial issues, as well as opportunities for sourcing components and equipment. The exhibiting companies' staff will advise on pricing for possible cooperation.
