This month, OPN throws the spotlight on the dynamic environment for photonics in Europe—a leader both in photonic science and in recognition of that science’s power to drive regional progress and economic growth.
The E.U. and its member states have embarked on a research journey with an ambitious goal: to make Europe a powerhouse on the emerging global landscape of quantum technology.
As the deadline for the U.K.’s exit from the European Union looms, uncertainty still clouds the possible impact on the photonics market.
The early-17th-century Netherlands, benefiting from dynamic and robust socioeconomic development, was at the forefront of early optics progress—an effort that involved both luminaries and less-known contributors.
