I have to thank Industrial Laser Review for the invitation to update you on the exciiner laser market. Two years ago Lindsay Austin has given some examples of applications of use of industrial excimer laser in particular. I'm not going to repeat that because you can find them in the SPIE's proceedings of the last industrial laser market seniinar. As mentioned before this afternoon we have hardly heard anything about excimer lasers. It was only after until the presentation of Jim Rutt where he explicitly mentioned excimer lasers that triggered a few questions about excimer lasers. And one of the reasons for that is that it gets lost in the noise of the statistics and the uncertainties that we have heard this afternoon, and if I take then the exciraer figures they hardly play a role. If I compare, for instance, that I have heard something like 1000 CO2 and YAG laser units sold in the U.S. in 1990, then you can intagine that when we talk about industrial excirner lasers which are in the order of 80, less than 100, you're completely in the noise of the other figures.
