The state of the art in the optical characterization of materials is advancing rapidly. New insights have been gained into the theoretical foundations of this research and exciting developments have been made in practice, driven by new applications and innovative sensor technologies that are constantly evolving.
The great success of past conferences proves the necessity of a platform for presentation, discussion and evaluation of the latest research results in this interdisciplinary field. For this reason, the International Conference on Optical Characterization of Materials (OCM) has taken place for the sixth time on March 22/23, 2023.
The event addressed recent developments in innovative photonic micro sensors with digital image processing for geo-, color-, multi-, hyper- and full-spectral photonic measurement applications for the optical characterization of materials in industry, biology/medicine, environment and security and in daily life.
The International Conference on Optical Characterization of Materials (OCM 2023) was organized by the Karlsruhe Center for Spectral Signatures of Materials (KCM) in cooperation with the German Chapter of the Instrumentation & Measurement Society of IEEE. KCM is an association of institutes of the Karlsruhe Institute for Technology (KIT) and the business unit Inspection and Optronic Systems of the Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation IOSB.
Our SpectroNet Collaboration Conference took place one day before the OCM and both events complemented each other very well. As always, you can also find the videos of the OCM on our Vimeo-Channel.
