The leading peer-reviewed meeting on lasers & electro-optics.
CLEO (Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics) serves as the premier international forum for scientific and technical optics, uniting the fields of lasers and opto-electronics by bringing together all aspects of laser technology, from basic research to industry applications.
Attendees have the opportunity to hear and present groundbreaking research, share ideas, and network with colleagues and luminaries. CLEO presents a world-renowned peer-reviewed program and offers high quality content from five core event elements:
CLEO: QELS - Fundamental Science
CLEO: Science & Innovations
CLEO: Applications & Technology
CLEO: Market Focus
Technology Transfer Program
The Technology Transfer Program will include a Pitch Panel for entrepreneurs to showcase their technology, explain why it's valuable and discuss the next steps to commercialization.
The program will also continue to provide a Tutorial for those that want to learn more about the licensing process - funding, entrepreneurship, technology transfer and intellectual property. In addition, organizations will feature their license ready technologies at tabletop displays in the exhibit hall.

Materials are often used to control and manipulate photons. Metamaterials and metasurfaces are two representative classes of judiciously designed structures that provide unprecedented platforms for sculpting waves and fields. Their extreme properties lead to novel opportunities in photonics. Light-matter interaction in metastructures exhibits unusual functionalities with numerous exciting features and potential applications.
