Things are looking up

Photonics Spectra
Oct 2009

The word from Washington and Wall Street these days is that better days are ahead. From President Obama to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke to Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner, the message is that we have hit the bottom of the recession and are headed up.

All this is good news for the photonics industry. Stimulus funds are pouring into green technologies such as solar power, which affects photonics companies from laser manufacturers to coaters. And the move to energy efficiency is providing an impetus for the LED industry, as these versatile devices find roles in applications ranging from street lighting to hospital operating rooms.

And here at Laurin Publishing, we are moving full steam ahead to report on these exciting developments, providing our loyal readers with the latest news, feature articles and insightful analyses.

For more than half a century, our goal has been to promote the industry through thick and thin, and this time is no different. Our staff has a combined total of 500 years of experience in monitoring the industry and providing it with the resources it needs to keep moving forward.

Just last year, we relaunched Photonics Spectra with a new look and new features to better serve our readers and advertisers. And, to keep up with the latest trends, we are expanding the focus of BioPhotonics, formerly Biophotonics International, to include an emphasis on product development and government and regulatory issues. Also, you will soon see a fresh new look for our Web page. It will be loaded with enhanced features, expanded content and informative videos, all in an interactive, user-friendly format.

We have always had faith in the industry and have worked to drive it forward. We will continue to do so with a new sense of purpose and vigor.

So, with the economy on the mend, let’s look to a brighter tomorrow.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
