Newport Corporation

Booth #1906

Newport’s TPI Battle is a head-to-head contest where you and a friend race each other to determine who has the fastest and most precise hands to be a Photonics Guru.  The participants will not only be able to use some of Newport’s newest products but also gain an understanding of the benefits of various mounts and actuators to help them in the future when designing their next optical system.

With each battle a prize is provided to the winner and each day the individual with the best time is given a larger prize.  We will also award the Newport TPI battle – CLEO 2014 top prize for the fastest time.
