European roadmap for photonics and nanotechnologies

Abstract:
After a two-year process involving workshops, symposia and interviews with experts, the project Merging Optics and Nanotechnologies (MONA), which was launched in June 2005 and is funded by the European Commission within its 6th Framework Program (FP6), has released the ‘European Roadmap for Photonics and Nanotechnologies'. This identifies potential synergies between photonics/nanophotonics and nanomaterials/nanotechnologies.

More than 300 professionals in industry and academia contributed to the content of the MONA Roadmap, including the following MONA members: project leader CEA LETI plus Alcatel-Thales III-V Lab, market research firm Yole Developpement, and Paris-based network Optics Valley and the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) of France; epitaxial deposition equipment maker Aixtron AG, glass-maker Schott AG and research organization VDI Technologiezentrum GmbH (VDI TZ) of Germany; process equipment maker ASM-International of The Netherlands; independent research institute IMEC of Belgium; and contract R&D firm Acreo AB of Sweden.

The roadmap's main component is identification of the highest-priority economic growth areas, taking into account market size, market growth, and the positioning of European industry and research in these areas.
