san franciscoThe Route des Lasers will be at booth 1323 at Photonics West and at booth #8310 at BIOS, February 7 – 12, in San Francisco, California  The Route des Lasers, a competitiveness cluster exclusively for photonics companies, today announces it will join eight of its emerging technology firms exhibiting their latest innovations at Photonics West and BIOS 2015. The innovations will span a range of light-based technologies and systems for present day and future applications. They cover everything from healthcare and consumer products to materials processing for advanced manufacturing, lighting and quantum computing.The Route des Lasers sees the US as a highly important and attractive market for photonics technologies; the main driver of innovation in the 21st century according to the European Commission. The majority of French photonics firms export. Exports represent 70 per cent of their of their production, approximately €7 billion in annual sales (source: upcoming Photonics Market Study, the French Ministry of the Economy, Finances and Industry’s Directorate General for Enterprises).Participation at Photonics West and BIOS, where 20,000 attendees are expected, creates an opportunity for them to demonstrate the technological appeal underlying their innovations to international audiences.“The Route des Lasers is excited about the remarkable innovations that its cluster members will exhibit at both BIOS and Photonics West next month. Our participation further builds on the worldwide recognition French photonics has garnered in aerospace, biomedical, automotive, telecommunications, defense and security, instrumentation and industrial processes and other fields,” said Herve Floch, VP of the Route des Lasers competitiveness cluster. “Visitors will see super resolution microscopes, new ultrafast lasers showing the ultimate in beam quality, deformable mirrors for wave-front correction of intense laser beams and learn about the 3D printing of human skin, among others. We expect high interest in our innovations on show this year from system integrators, researchers, OEMS or anyone developing photonics materials and processes. We also aim to leverage this interest by seeking new cluster collaborations.”The Route des Lasers will be at BIOS booth #8310 and Photonics West booth #1323. It will host two cocktail events: BIOS on Saturday, February 7 at 4:00pm and Photonics West on Wednesday, February 11 at 4:00pm onwards.Based in Bordeaux, France, the Route des Lasers competitiveness cluster has become one of Europe’s highest concentrations of scientific expertise in photonics. This includes developing and building one of the two largest ever laser facilities: the Laser Megajoule (LMJ), which the French Prime Minister Manuel Valls officially launched in October 2014.The Route des Lasers’ upcoming partnership with the French Tech Hub in San Francisco is one of the steps the cluster is also taking to reinforce the presence of its photonics firms in the US market. It will be coordinating regional events to celebrate the ‘International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies’.
