EuroPhotonics Grows with Industry
Karen A. Newman
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
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.
