The Photonics Spotlight

10-Year Anniversary of RP Photonics

Dr. Rüdiger Paschotta

Ref.: anniversary article

An an exception, the Photonics Spotlight today covers a non-technical topic which is related to our company history: RP Photonics is celebrating its 10-year anniversary. End of May 2004, the company was founded and officially started in Zürich, Switzerland. Hardly anybody in the laser industry knew about some Dr. Paschotta, who had a reputation only as a scientific researcher. But that changed rapidly – nowadays, RP Photonics is a worldwide very well known company. Our anniversary article tells you how this worked based on a somewhat unusual business model, and what is expected to happen next. Therefore, I can keep this newsletter article very short, hoping you will visit our anniversary article with a single click and learn more there!

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

Note that you can also receive the articles in the form of a newsletter or with an RSS feed.
