Welcome to CAOE 2022

2022 International Topical Conference on Advances in Optical Engineering

Dear Colleagues,

The field of optical engineering is developing rapidly worldwide. The related technologies have been applied in space exploration, Mars exploration,micro-nano devices and new materials development, biomedicine, quantum computerand quantum communication. In the “National Guideline on Medium and Long Term Program for Science and Technology Development (2006-2020)” of China, multiple priority areas and great demands mentioning Optical Engineering involving remote sensing, environmental monitoring, biomedical diagnosis, space exploration, astronomy, and other scientific areas. At present, the world’s largest radio telescope FAST (Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radioTelescope) has been put into use; Chang'e IV lunar probe has also launch torealized the lunar exploration on the back of the moon; Mars exploration programhas been formally established. These are the concrete embodiment of the rapid development of China’s photonics and optical engineering.

Indeed, there have been significant advances as well over the past years. There is an increasing number of Optical Engineering companies setting up or ramping uptheir manufacturing facilities here and at the same time some home grown companies are show-casing innovations and technologies.

In order to cater to these developments, many universities and scientific research institutionsin Xi’an, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Tianjin and other famous cities have established ‘Photonics Research Centre’. These institutions have organized many national academic conferences for deeper academic exchanges and scientific interactions, as well as to strengthen the cultivation of the excellent talent and finally to reach out to the younger generation and highlight them career and research options in optical engineering.

The 2022 first edition of the International Topical Conference on Advances in Optical Engineering (CAOE) will be held on October 22-23, 2022, Zhong Wei Goethe Hotel in Hangzhou, Hangzhou. In partnership with the the China University of Geosciences (CUG) and the Wuhan University, the purpose of this conference is to build the international communication platform for optical research, to aim at the opportunity of emerging markets and technology, to strengthen the advanced technology of optical application and measurement for innovation and development through a series of academic exchanges. This conference issignificant in promoting communication of the latest achievements, enhancing mutual understanding of the status and trend of development, and strengthening the international cooperation in the optical field. 

Furthermore, international experts at the very cutting edge of their disciplines will deliver keynote presentations on their latest research, experiences, future goals for engineering/environmental geophysics, and raising public awareness on the critical role of near- surface geophysics.
