Swissphotonics PIC Convention

Swissphotonics Logo

“Guiding Light, Sharing Knowledge” is the motto for the first Swiss PIC Convention that Swissphotonics has scheduled this year. Hosted by Polariton Technologies we are nurturing networking between newcomers and experts in the diverse world of photonic integrated circuits (PICs).

The schedule includes workshops, talks and a lab tour of the premises in Adliswil. Experienced professionals can share the knowledge and help building the PIC ecosystem between Zurich and Lausanne and shining well into Europe and the world.

Where: Soodstrasse 52, Adliswil, Switzerland

When: 21 June 2024

An event hosted by Polariton Technologies
