A 'Thank You' to our Frontiers 2024 partners

Photonics Frontiers 2024 cover

The second year of Photonics Frontiers would not have been possible without the participation of our commercial partners.

Special mention goes to Avantes and Lumencor, who partnered with us for exhilarating life sciences and medical coverage. You can read more about their activities below. Thanks too to EPIC, our longstanding partners in all things European photonics.

We aim to participate in as many annual events as possible, including the UK’s Photonex (this October, in Manchester), and San Francisco’s Photonics West again early in 2025. We encourage anyone with a point of view or expert analysis to share to get in touch. 

Please help us by talking about what you read here, share the stories on your social-media channels (#PhotonicFrontiers2024) and we look forward to starting work on next year’s Photonics Frontiers and to seeing you in person for more fascinating conversations.
