Photonics and Laser Technology Blogs – Where Are They?

Abstract: There are currently very few quality blogs on topics like lasers, nonlinear and fiber optics, or photonics. If any are known, readers are welcome to suggest them to be listed in the Photonics Spotlight.

Dr. Rüdiger Paschotta

I heard of someone who wanted to write an article which would make readers aware of interesting blogs in areas like photonics, laser technology, nonlinear and fiber optics, but postponed that – guess why! – because she couldn't find sufficiently many blogs which are interesting and active. This prompted me to do a search myself, and I found that indeed it is quite difficult to find any such blogs in the mentioned topical areas which meet certain quality standards. In some blog directories, you even stumble across a lot of spam.

So maybe my readers know some good pages? Suggestions will be welcome (via e-mail or the contact form), and will (as far as they look convincing) be published at this place later on.

This article is a posting of the Photonics Spotlight, authored by Dr. Rüdiger Paschotta. You may link to this page and cite it, because its location is permanent. See also the Encyclopedia of Laser Physics and Technology.
