Buyer's Guide … the one with the Encyclopedia!

Registration Form for New Suppliers

Here you can enter the data for a new company profile and the products offered by that supplier.

Basic entries for the company and its products are free, but you can also order enhanced entries with this form.

Please note: If your company already has an entry in the RP Photonics Buyer's Guide (check this via the suppliers page), then please use the already prepared form which you can reach via the company profile page. There, you only have to add the missing information.

Please keep in mind that the entered data are meant to be published on our website; thus please refrain from entering any personal information.

Your Identity

Your name and e-mail address (not for publication, only for communicating with you):

We may occasionally contact you, e.g. reminding you to check and update your entries, but we will certainly not flood you with e-mails.

Company Profile

A company profile is shown on an own web page and lists information on a company, such as the contact details and the offered products. These profiles can be reached (a) from the list of all suppliers and (b) from the pages with suppliers for a certain product.

Name and address:


Bright Light Laser Corp.
37 Wilmington Rd.
Pasadena, CA 95845
United States

Telephone: (optional)
Fax: (optional)
E-mail: (optional)
Please enter telephone and e-mail address of the company, not your personal data. If you enter an e-mail address, this will be displayed using some Javascript code which makes it hard for spam robots to harvest it. We highly recommend listing the e-mail address, as this makes it easier for users to send you inquiries.
Website URL:

(More details, which can be displayed only with an advertising package, can be entered below.)

Free Entries

You can be listed in this buyer's guide without any cost. However, there are some some limitations:

  • You obtain a basic company profile, giving an overview on your contact information and a list of your products, but no logo and no company description.
  • Up to 10 of your registered products will be displayed, and these appear as basic product entries. (You can enter more than 10 products, and our system will then automatically select some of those for display. Under some circumstances, it may select more than 10 of them.)

Advertising Package

Our advertising package will give you a much improved visibility:

  • Your enhanced company profile contains a company description and your company logo. (You can enter the description below. We will take the logo from your website, or you can send it via e-mail.) You can also have distributor information and social media links displayed.
  • Your company logo is also shown in the alphabetic list of suppliers, where your whole entry gets substantially more space.
  • You can have an unlimited number of products displayed, and each one appears with greatly improved visibility in your company profile and in the list of suppliers for a specific product. For each product, you also get a valuable ad display on the corresponding encyclopedia article page, if there is such an article.
  • We mention your participation at upcoming exhibitions and trade shows in your company profile, in the alphabetic list of suppliers and in all of your enhanced product entries. For the major events, we find the information ourselves; for others, just tell us the event name and website and (if available) your booth number.

Near the bottom of the form, you can decide whether you want our ad package.

Additional Inputs for Company Profile

If you choose an ad package below, the content of the following fields can also be displayed:

Company description (max. 1000 characters) here:

Company slogan:

Distributors of your company:

Each line can contain the name of a distributor company and (optionally) after a colon (":") some additional details, e.g. the region in which that distributor is active. Example:
British Photonics: Great Britain and Ireland

For distributors: which companies do you represent:

Each line can contain the name of a company you represent and (optionally) after a colon (":") some additional details. Example:
Laser Plus: high-power ultrafast laser and amplifier systems

Social media:

(enter links like https://www.facebook.com/RP.Photonics)

Quality certificates:

(e.g. ISO 9001:2008)
  Valid until:
(e.g. 2018-12-31)

Announcements for exhibitions and trade shows: just tell us by e-mail at which events you will be participating (and your booth numbers, if available). We will then display that in your company profile and on the alphabetic list of all suppliers.

Offered Products

The checkboxes below are used to indicate which products your company offers. Each of your products appears

  • in your company profile,
  • on a page listing all suppliers for that product, and
  • in the corresponding encyclopedia article, if there is one and you have an ad package.

If you want free entries only, just indicate below which products you offer.

If more products have been entered than can be displayed, our system will automatically select some of them for display – preferably those for which only few suppliers are registered. It may happen that our system displays more products than expected, if we could otherwise not show sufficiently many suppliers for some products.

If you want our ad package (to be selected below all the products), you can also enter for each product:

  • your product description (which can contain HTML links); example:
    We offer <a href="products/diode_lasers.html">diode lasers</a> with output powers up to 100 W.
    (Your server address is automatically added to any link address if you omit "http://". In our example, the link address would be automatically expanded to /products/diode_lasers.html.)
  • the URL (web address) of a web page on your website corresponding to that type of product (if you have such a page); example:
If you enter the URL only, we will try to get the product description from that page – also the product images, which you can otherwise send us via e-mail to buyersguide@rp-photonics.com.

Once you have registered all your products, you can see their number and the resulting price of your ad package near the bottom of the form.

Your Choice

Please decide:

Yes, I want the ad package.

No, I want only free entries.


For example, if you had any difficulties with this form, we will be grateful for your feedback.

Spam Protection

Such forms are often exploited by spam robots. Therefore, please prove that you are a human being:
What is 7 + 4?

Sending these form contents is not legally binding for you. We will send you our terms and conditions and ask you to informally accept them, if you have not yet done so, and to accept the cost.

Payments are normally done with a wire transfer. Alternatively, they can be done via PayPal (e.g. with credit card), but in that case we add 3% to the invoiced sum.

The data will be manually processed within a few days; there will be no automatic changes occurring on our website.

In case that you enter any information which implies some cost, we will send you an e-mail with the detailed conditions. Your enhanced entries will become effective only after you have confirmed your agreement with those.
