XI Workshop on Adaptive Optics for Industry and Medicine

The International Workshop on Adaptive Optics for Industry and Medicine (AOIM) provides scientists and engineers from both industry and academia with opportunities to explore recent developments, current practices and future trends in adaptive optics and related fields. The workshop will be held from March 4-7, 2018 in Murcia, Spain. A key feature of this single-session meeting is the relaxed atmosphere with all participants encouraged to present and discuss their work either as a talk or a poster. A number of prominent invited speakers have confirmed their assistance and will provide tutorial style revision of the field. A industrial exhibition will bring the latest technologies available for on-site testing.

The workshop is organized by the Laboratorio de Optica de la Universidad de Murcia (LO·UM). The conference will be based on the Espinardo Campus located 6 km from the historic center of Murcia, well connected by public transportation. The city of Murcia is located in the south-east of Spain, 400 km from Madrid and 50 km from the Mediterranean coast. There are plenty of cultural and recreational opportunities in the area, including beaches, nature areas and historic monuments. Murcia can be accessed through the Alicante or Murcia airports or by train from Madrid.


Topics will include:

  • Wavefront sensing
  • Wavefront correction devices
  • Control systems and strategies
  • Complete adaptive optics systems
  • Image sharpening
  • Applications of adaptive optics: Microscopy, lasers, communications, biomedical applications & vision science
  • Industrial breakthroughs
