Collapse A Year in Visual Optics: Understanding the Anterior Human Eye

This webinar we will provide background for the analysis and understanding of the anterior human eye, cornea and lens, that not only provides refraction and high transparency that allow us to see the world around us but also is critical as a rigid yet transparent window to the inner eye of immeasurable value when diagnosing a number of eye and retinal conditions that may deteriorate vision if left untreated.

  • The refractive properties of the cornea, the foremost element of the eye, will be covered and examples will be given of how the cornea can be imaged and analyzed. Improved imaging and analysis is crucial for eye diagnostics and for accurate refractive surgery.
  • The mechanical properties of the eye and, in particular, the cornea will be discussed. The optical and mechanical properties of the cornea are determined by layered collagen fibrils. Only though detailed mechanical modeling can its structure and properties be understood.
  • The crystalline eye lens has a graded refractive index profile and ensures vision and accommodation. Scattering may hinder clear vision and require implantation of an intraocular lens. A number of lenses are available that mimic the natural crystalline lens to provide accurate vision. The optics and opportunities of intraocular lenses will be discussed. 

What You Will Learn/Seminar Objectives
  • Methods used to image and analyze the cornea of the human eye
  • Methods that allow detailed mechanical analysis of the cornea and its parts
  • Analysis of vision and the role of the crystalline lens and intraocular lenses

Who Should Attend
  • Anyone interested in learning about the eye, the mechanics and the optical properties of the anterior eye and their importance for vision as well as ophthalmic imaging.
  • Students and researchers with an interest in ophthalmic technologies and the eye.
  • Ophthalmic industry employees and clinicians who wish to increase their understanding of the human eye and the technical possibilities currently available to explore the cornea and the crystalline lens.

  • The webinar will be targeted for beginners and intermediate researchers towards the specialists.\

Collapse Light on a Chip: The Future of Photonic Integration
Communicating with light (i.e., photons) on fiber has allowed the Internet to grow from transmission rates of a few kilobits per second into the terabit age. Over the same period silicon-based integration proved its value in the realm of electronics by transforming the way integrated circuits are built and fueling technology advances that have led to the Internet and the Cloud. Today photonic integration is transforming the way the optical networks that enable the Internet and Cloud are built. December 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of commercial shipments of long-haul optical networking solutions based on the world’s first large scale photonic integrated circuit.

This webinar briefly chronicles the evolution of photonic integration, the state of the art of photonic integration and future directions for this technology. We cover how these chips are designed and manufactured, why they are so incredibly reliable, and ultimately how they are integrated into a complete transport network architecture. We also look at the market opportunities for this technology in an Internet that is increasingly driven by Cloud-based architectures.
What you will learn in the webinar:
  • What is photonic integration and why is it vital in today's Internet and Cloud?
  • Choosing the right material for the job – Indium Phosphide and Silicon Photonics
  • How Indium Phosphide went from the lab to commercial success
  • The role of photonic integration in the age of the Cloud
  • An analyst perspective on the role of photonic integration in Cloud-based architectures from Peter Christy of 451 Research
Who Should Attend
  • Engineers interested in optical components or DWDM networks
  • Technical marketing personnel
  • Journalists or analysts covering the core network or DWDM transmission market
  • Students studying optical transmission or core networking
  • Intermediate to advanced.  Assumes some knowledge of semiconductor physics, and the operation of optical components.
