Reseña del Evento

On September 9-10, 2011, the Academia Mexicana de Óptica, AMO, and the División de Óptica of the Sociedad Mexicana de Física, DO-SMF, organized the VIII Symposium Optics in Industry, SOI, in the city of Toluca de Lerdo, Mexico, with the help of theUniversidad Autónoma del Estado de México, UAEM, the Mexico State University. The SOI is a biennial meeting of academicians, industry leaders, researches and engineers in the field of optics and photonics; which aim is to serve as an efficient mechanism for optics and photonics knowledge transfer to the industry, in order to provide innovation opportunities for the economic sector, as well as effective solutions to current industry productive processes.

This eight SOI edition opening ceremony was attended by doctors Eduardo Gasca, the UAEM Rector, represented by Sergio Franco, the UAEM Deputy Director for Research and Advanced Studies; Ramón Rodríguez-Vera, AMO President; Miguel Mayorga, UAEM Sciences Faculty Director; Amalia Martínez, AMO CEO; Eric Rosas, ad hoc President of the Iberian-American Network for Optics, RIAO; Lorena Romero and Juan Sumaya, members of the VII SOI Local Organizing Committee.

Also discussion panels on technology transfer mechanisms and academy-industry cooperation improvement were conducted; as well as the Optics and Photonics Technological Capabilities presentations were offered by the Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica, Óptica y Electrónica, the Centro de Investigaciones en Óptica, the Centro de Investigación Científica y Educación Superior de Ensenada, and the Centro de Innovación Applicada y Tecnologías Competitivas.
As a traditional SOI activity, on September 8, hands-on workshops on Color administration, Fiber optics couplings, and Nano-particle synthesis by laser ablation and its optical characterization, were given by Juan Manuel Bujdud, Ismael Torres, Marco A. Camacho and Miguel A. Camacho, respectively.
