The International Conference on Optical Characterization of Materials (OCM-2021) is 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 Automated Visual Inspection of the Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation IOSB.
The state of the art in the optical characterization of materials is advancing quickly.
The aim of this conference is leading researchers in the field of characterisation of Materials by spectral properties from UV (240 nm) to IR (14 μm), multispectral image analysis, X-ray methods, polarimetry and microscopy. Typical areas for these applications and techniques are e.g. food industry, recycling of waste materials, detection of contaminated materials, mining, process industry and raw materials.
