Jul 2014
BRUSSELS, July 29, 2014 — The European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) has hired the market research and consultancy firm Tematys to report the use of photonic technologies in the automotive industry.

The report will survey laser systems used in welding, cutting and marking, machine vision, reflectometry, thermography, profilometry and shearography and information-delivery technologies for screens, displays, GPS and lighting.

The report will segment the applications, analyze the industrial value chains and technology trends and challenges of those applications, and also analyze market data and trends.

To receive a copy of the executive summary or to participate in the development of the study, contact carlos.lee@epic-assoc.com.


GLOSSARY
cutting
The process of forming a lens to a given pattern, or of cutting a piece of glass along the line of scratch.
profilometry
Measurement of surface roughness or quality through the use of a diamond-pointed stylus connected to a coil in an electric field. As the stylus is traced across the surface, a current is created that corresponds to the roughness.
thermography
The recording of a scanned pattern on a photographic medium, utilizing the infrared radiation naturally emitted by the object, as well as infrared receptors, such as photoelectric cells.
