Jamie Dreyfuss Mitsubishi Electronics (United States) Dave Evans Spectra Diode Laboratories (United States) Tom Wolfram Amoco Laser Company (United States) Gary T. Forrest FYI Reports and Laser Focus World Magazine Senior Contributing Editor (United States)
We've invited three people to speak on the Laser Diode Market-place. I'm going to ask them to come up and sit up here so you can watch their reaction to each other's presentation, as well. Jamie Dreyfuss from Mitsubishi was invited as a person who is representative of what I would call the commercial/consumer laser diode marketplace. The second speaker will be Dave Evans. Dave Evans is from Spectra Diode Labs, the pioneering company in terms of increasing the output power of the laser diode. The third speaker will be Tom Wolfram who's the General Manager of Amoco Laser, both a consumer of the high powered laser diodes, and also, within the Amoco organization has a substantial investment and interest (in the person of Bob Burnham who's also here) in laser diode technology.
