Some of the exhibiting companies might have employment opportunities for persons with backgrounds in the optical field. This includes those with vacuum deposition and semiconductor experience (solar cells and systems of various types) and optical design expertise (concentrated solar power, both photovoltaic and thermal). Also, many of the businesses present might have a need for mechanical and electrical engineers. The website is still available at:
