Photon14 is the largest optics and photonics conference in the UK and the seventh in the series, following Photon02 (Cardiff), Photon04 (Glasgow), Photon06 (Manchester), Photon08 (Edinburgh), Photon10 (Southampton) and Photon12 (Durham). Photon14 will be held at Imperial College London and is an umbrella conference series embracing both 'Optics and Photonics 2014' and 'QEP-21' and has a common social programme

Photon14 will comprise:

  • Optics and Photonics 2014
  • QEP-21 the latest in the series of conferences initiated in 1973 by the IOP Quantum Electronics and Photonics Group.
  • An exhibition of the latest optics and photonics technology
  • Plenary Lectures
