The future of photonics: How good, how cheap, how much fair play?

The results from the first round of a survey on future challenges for the photonics industry show concerns around quality, costs, respect for intellectual property, and other issues.

The survey results will be offered as input from the community to the National Academies committee that is updating the Harnessing Light study of the photonics industry.

Survey results are posted on the SPIE website, and include a list of what respondents saw as the most important photonics technologies for the future.

Now, it’s your turn.

Click on this link to take the survey, and share your perspectives with the Harnessing Light committee.

And if you'll be in San Diego later this month, you can share your ideas with the committee in person.

Several members of the Harnessing Light committee will attend a town-hall style forum at SPIE Optics + Photonics in the San Diego Convention Center, 5:30-7 p.m. on Monday 22 August. The public is welcome to attend.
