Countdown to Photonex 2014 – only 4 weeks to go!

LDLSX_Selection_Guide_Page_1_Image_0001

Photonex2013_1Next month sees the opening of Photonex 2014 – the showcase light and imaging exhibition and conference. Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena is once again the venue, and Elliot Scientific will be there on Stand B10.

We will be displaying the Mad City Labs nanopositioning range, our own portfolio of Elliot|Martock micropositioning systems and accessories, and other piezo-driven systems from mechOnics.

Lasers from IPG Photonics, Integrated Optics, and FEMTOLASERS will be on show, along with Honeywell Sperian and NoIR Laser protective eyewear. In addition, the latest version of the popular laser-driven plasma light source from Energetiq will be demonstrated alongside Spatial Light Modulators and diffractive optics from Holoeye.

We look forward to welcoming you to our stand on October 15th or 16th, where you will also discover an exciting new range of products we are introducing.

For information about the Show, visit the Photonex website.
