Survey says ... lasers, detectors, sensors, and imaging lead the list

The Harnessing Light 2 report aims to illustrate the strong economic impact that technologies have on the global economy, both now and in the future.

SPIE is asking the industry in an open survey to rate the importance of photonics technologies, to help inform the committee.

You can see initial results below – but what is your opinion?

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

And remember to attend the town hall forum with members of the Harnessing Light committee tomorrow (Monday 22 August) 5:30-7 p.m. at the San Diego Convention Center during SPIE Optics + Photonics -- have your say in person!
