Gentec-EO wins the "Historical Items Contest" at ICALEO

For the Laser Institute of America’s 50th anniversary, our Eastern USA representative Félicien Legrand attended the ICALEO conference in Orlando, FL last week.

Gentec-EO won the first place at the Historical Items Contest organized by Directed Light Inc. Some fine pieces of laser history were gathered there! Kudos to Spectra-Physics and EWI for winning the second and third places.
