Celebrating 27 Years Analyzing the Business of Photonics!
WORLD CLASS SPEAKERS PRESENTING AT THE 2015 LASERS & PHOTONICS MARKETPLACE SEMINAR
The UltraFast Future
Ursula Keller, PhD
Ultrafast Laser Physics Group, ETH Zurich (Switzerland)
Prof. Dr. Ursula Keller is the Director of the National Center of Competence in
Research for Molecular Ultrafast Science and Technology (MUST) and heads the
Keller Group at ETH Zurich. She was a co-founder and board member of
Time-Bandwidth Products (acquired by JDSU in 2014) and GigaTera, a venture capital funded telecom company (acquired by Time-Bandwidth). Previously she was a Member of Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories, and a visiting professor at the University of California, Berkeley and the Lund Institute of Technologies. She invented and demonstrated the first passively mode-locked diode-pumped solid-state laser in 1992 and solved a 25-year-old challenge. Her research interests are exploring and pushing the frontiers in ultrafast science and technology, including attosecond science. She received her Physics Diplom from ETH Zurich and PhD in Applied Physics from Stanford University. In 2013, the Laser Institute of America gave Prof. Keller the Arthur L. Schawlow Award, which recognizes individuals who have made distinguished contributions to applications of lasers in science, industry, or education.
The Global Laser Markets: Insights and Forecasts
Senior Analyst, Lasers & LED Lighting
Strategies Unlimited (Mountain View, CA)
In his presentation, Allen Nogee will present the macroeconomic forces at work, supplier trends, and technology developments in the worldwide laser markets. His talk will provide a global market review and 5- year forecast of laser revenues by product and application, including industrial lasers and applications, communications, lithography, defense and security, sensing, additive manufacturing, and medical, and he will look ahead with insights gained from his research resulting in specific sales estimates. His talk will include data from his recent Mid-IR Lasers and Fiber Lasers reports, and the 2015 Worldwide Market for Lasers report.
THE LASERS & PHOTONICS MARKETPLACE SEMINAR is the only event anywhere in the world that focuses on the entire laser marketplace. It provides a comprehensive market perspective that is unobtainable elsewhere, with market data segmented by applications and laser technology from three of the photonics industry's leading resources: Laser Focus World, which delivers global coverage of the entire photonics industry;Industrial Laser Solutions, a primary source of information on industrial laser materials processing; BioOptics World, which covers advances in lasers, optics, and imaging for the life sciences; and Strategies Unlimited, the world’s foremost photonics market research company. In addition, industry experts present their views and analysis of photonics-market trends, applications development, and business outlook.
