- Jobs in Photonics Second Annual European Survey
Comparing last year's results with this year's, we find that job satisfaction remains steady, but that keeping up with technology is a problem.
In this, our second European survey, we were pleased to see that once again our readers took the time to respond. With a more than 30 percent return on the questionnaire, they provided us with a good representation of what is happening in the field.
