BMF wins Manufacturing Category at 2021 SPIE Photonics Prism Awards
We are honored that the microArch S240 won the 2021 Prism Award in Manufacturing.
Earlier today, during the Prism Awards, SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and Photonics Media recognized the top optics and photonics products on the market.
The 13th annual ceremony — normally an invitation-only, black-tie affair held during SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco — was held online, streaming from the Prism Awards website. The virtual platform offered an opportunity to involve participants across the globe, while also flavoring the high-profile recognition showcase with an adventurous James Bond/Steven Spielberg/Indiana Jones accent. The 90-minute affair highlighted an exciting range of dynamic companies — from KYOCERA SLD Laser and nanoLambda, to Teledyne DALSA and Element Six — all of them applying innovative and creative solutions to critical problems in areas such as life sciences, smart sensing, transportation, quantum, and vision technology.
Each year, the Prism Awards reflect the latest exciting developments, exponential growth, and rich technical innovations across photonics and photonics-enabled industries. For consideration of this year’s awards, SPIE received 149 applications from 18 countries. Finalists and winners were selected by a panel of international judges that included leaders from both the technology commercialization and funding sectors.
