OFMC 2009
Europe's leading conference for measurement of optical fibres and optoelectronics
16 - 18 September 2009

Scope and Objectives

OFMC is Europe's leading conference on measurements for optical fibres and optoelectronics. OFMC brings together scientists, technologists, metrologists and industry specialists to discuss issues and developments in measurements for guided wave optical technologies. Such technologies are being applied across a wide range of industries from automotive engineering to medicine and biology. The increasing role of fibre optics and optoelectronics presents not only opportunities, but also measurement problems which need to be solved.

The meeting will consist of invited and contributed papers. Contributions are sought on all experimental and theoretical aspects of measurements in guided light technology, including:

  • Fibres and fibre components
  • Photonic components and devices
  • Systems
  • Field and laboratory instrumentation
  • Standards and traceability

As applied across all technological sectors including:

  • High speed and DWDM optical communications
  • FTTx (Fibre to the Home, Premises etc)
  • Secure communications and quantum cryptography
  • Short range optical interconnects
  • Biomedical optics
  • Sensor applications
