10-Year Anniversary of RP Photonics
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 and cite it, because its location is permanent. See also the RP Photonics Encyclopedia.
