In this issue, we present both a look back at growth in the European photonics industry in the past year and a look ahead to EuroPhotonics coverage in 2011. We are pleased to present a feature on growth in the Netherlands’ industry, where approximately 200 photonics companies together generate an annual turnover of €5.5 billion ($7.7 billion). Growth is driven by two photonics powerhouses, electronics giant Philips of Amsterdam and lithography specialist ASML of Veldhoven, which, together, contribute about 70 percent of this revenue. New look for an evolving favorite In 2011, EuroPhotonics will emerge from the pages of Photonics Spectra in two print editions and an e-newsletter, circulated to readers in Europe and distributed at major laser and vision events. In this new format, Photonics Media will continue to present a regular look at the news and newsmakers in the European photonics industry. Through features, news and regular sections, we will bring readers updates on cutting-edge photonics applications; company, people and product news; coverage of topics of concern to organizations doing business throughout Europe; and, in print editions, focused regional supplier listings. European subscribers to Photonics Spectra also will receive the May and October print editions of EuroPhotonics. The May issue will be distributed to visitors to LASER World of Photonics in Munich, and the October issue will be distributed at OPTO 2011 in Paris, at Photonex 2011 in Telford, UK, and at VISION 2011 in Stuttgart.
