Welcome to a week full of optics in Aachen! Dear colleague precision engineer in optics and optomechanics, The Optics & Optomechanics week is an unique collaboration by Dutch, German and international organisations. This week brings you outstanding speakers and lecturers from semicon to medical, from industry to academia, from Europe and abroad, teaching you about the details and latest trends. In 2013 we had the first bi-annual Optics and Optomechanics event in Eindhoven. In 2015 we had the OpticsWeek in Delft. More than 250 precision engineers joint both events. To extend the community to abroad, we have chosen to organize it in Aachen Germany and to involve German parties to the event. Representatives from acknowledged German industry and institutes are involved. We like to see you again in Aachen this year; Willkommen in Aachen!
