LASER EXPO

We are holding an exhibition that features the leading laser products, both from Japan and overseas, for the full range of scientific and industrial applications. Laser technology is expected to continually create new innovations, so many visitors come to this exhibition every year to see the latest laser products. By illustrating the full potential of the laser, it is possible to further strengthen the laser business and support the sustainable development of laser technology.
- Organizer: Laser Society of Japan
- Laser EXPO Committee Chair: Kazuhisa Yamamoto (Osaka University)
- Program Chair: Hiroshi Kurosawa (Japan Science and Technology Agency)

LENS EXPO (Design & Manufacturing)

This exhibition combines optical lenses with all the peripheral parts, designs, and manufacturing equipment to showcase the full range of optical lens products. Many industrial fields depend on optical technologies and there are increasing requirements for quality design and manufacturing equipment. Demand is growing, not only for mass-produced lenses, but also high added-value optical products. Companies that can meet these specification requirements are necessary in today’s growing market. At this exhibition, it is possible to understand the current optical lens design/manufacturing industry standards and connect them to your business.

IR+UV EXPO (Application & Technology)

This exhibition brings together applied infrared and applied ultraviolet products and companies. Infrared products include optical parts, camera systems, etc. from the infrared region, and should attract an audience from industry and research centers. In addition, this exhibition also covers terahertz-wave and applied ultraviolet products. Processing equipment and analysis / measurement applications will be featured and the exhibition will support direct business matching.

Industrial Camera EXPO

Digital cameras, video cameras, and built-in smartphone cameras are everywhere today in consumer products. At the same time, there is a dramatic increase in cameras for self-driving cars, industrial cameras for factory automation (FA), robots, IoT / network, nursing care, surveillance, measurement, monitoring, biomedical, and other industrial applications. In response to this technology growth, Japan Photonics Council (NPO) / OPTRONICS MEDIA are organizing a special Expo that focuses on industrial camera systems. Similar to the previously organized exhibition called “Vision Japan”, the new Industrial Camera will serve international companies that specialize in advanced camera systems. In addition to camera technologies, the Industrial Camera Expo will provide a venue for companies with software and network systems for signal and image processing. Together, this will be a comprehensive center for industrial camera/imaging systems.

Medical & Imaging EXPO

This expo combines biomedical photonics products and medical imaging technologies into an industrial / commercial exhibition. Photonic technologies bring dramatic advances to the fields of medicine. What the medical industry demands are "truly usable medical devices that combine photonics technologies". This exhibition provides a space to showcase the latest biomedical photonics and medical imaging systems.
- Organizer: Medical Imaging Consortium / OPTRONICS MEDIA

Space & Astronomical Optics EXPO

Optical technologies for space and astronomy are developing in a wide range and fast pace from basic to experimental use. These advanced systems require sophisticated components and software. This exhibition features the latest tools, parts, and equipment for engineers and researchers in the field of space and astronomical optics.
- Organizer: Japan Photonics Council (NPO)
- Planning cooperation: Japan Aerospace eXploration Agency, JAXA / National Astronomical Observatory of Japan, NAOJ

Positioning EXPO

Measurement and positioning systems requiring accuracies of micro- and nanoscale order. Optical metrology systems provide tools for scanning, measurement for manufacturing processes. Positioning equipment is often applied for biological research. These related tools are gathered together in a special exhibition. This is a good space to share product information with visitors, and also review and compare measurement / positioning systems with your business colleagues.
