Photonics Spectra Optical Design Summit 2024

22 May 2024 | 10:00 (CEST) | Online

Photonics Spectra Optical Design Summit is a one-day virtual event dedicated to modern optical design workflow.
As part of the summit, Frank Wyrowski will deliver a lecture on the topic of „Flat Lenses: Tracing the Evolution from Smooth Surfaces to Fresnel, Diffractive, and Meta Lenses.“ In this lecture, he will discuss the development of smooth surfaces, Fresnel optics, and diffractive optics up to metalenses, as well as current challenges in their design and simulation.

Furthermore, other speakers will address a range of compelling topics:


Frank Wyrowski

co-founded the companies LightTrans in 1999, Wyrowski Photonics in 2014, and Beijing Luoxun Technology Co., Ltd. in 2022. He has been professor of technical physics at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena and head of the Applied Computational Optics Group since 1996.
He dedicates his work as entrepreneur, researcher, and teacher to developing the concept and software for interoperable modeling which addresses the increasing demand for flexible modeling and design in optics and photonics applications. It seamlessly combines geometrical and physical optics by a unified theoretical approach and its implementation in the commercial optical modeling and design software VirtualLab Fusion. Customers worldwide benefit from his engagement through the companies, consulting and engineering services, and software products.
