2023 Innovators Awards: Meet the honorees

Aug. 1, 2023
For the sixth straight year, Laser Focus World held its Innovators Awards program, which celebrates the disparate and innovative technologies, products, and systems found in the photonics market.

Congratulations to all of the honorees of the 2023 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards. Each year, this program has a panel of judges review each of the submissions and rate the level of innovation and its perceived benefit to the further evolution of the industry.

While we provide recognition at various levels (Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze), it is important to note innovation at any level is important in pushing the market forward to further immerse photonics technologies into the applications and products improving our lives.
