InterOpto is the international trade show that unites advanced technologies of photonics, optoelectronics and lasers from Japan and abroad. Moving the location to Yokohama in 2010, InterOpto became attracting more attention from researchers and engineers and is committed as a major source of information of photonics industry. This show showcases the latest solutions for optical technology, from precision equipment, semiconductor, communication, measurement, to biotechnology, including the exhibitions "BioOpto Japan”, focused on optical technology in bio/medical industries, “LaserTech", focused on advanced laser material processing and "LED Japan”, focused on high brightness LEDs and lighting. Many opportunities abound in InterOpto as representative of the burgeoning photonics industry.
Sphere Ultrafast Photonics has made a strong presence at InterOpto 2014, by presenting the d-scan and giving a seminar on ultrafast laser characterisation aimed at providing a better understanding of the d-scan technology. Rosa Romero, CEO of Sphere Ultrafast Photonics, took the opportunity to congratulate the Japanese community for the Nobel Prize in Physics 2014, recently awarded jointly to Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura "for the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources".
