01 February 2011

PennWell Corporation's Laser Focus World magazine won a Gold "Eddie" at the 2011 Folio Awards held at Sentry Center in New York City on 25 January 25. The Folio Awards are the largest competition for magazines and recognize the best in both editorial and design excellence. Laser Focus World is a Corporate Member of SPIE.

Laser Focus World won a Gold "Eddie" Award in the B-to-B Technology-Computing-Telecom (Full Issue) category for its May 2010 edition celebrating 50 years of the laser.

"May 2010 marked a very important milestone in our industry," said Laser Focus World's Editor-in-Chief and Associate Publisher, Steve Anderson. "In May 1960 Theodore Maiman demonstrated the first ruby laser and, just 50 years later, lasers and photonics have become as essential to our way of life as electronics and electricity."
