Gentec-EO has launched the 2024 Laser Lab Awards program. 12 winners will receive one of the five laser output measurement kits of their choice among a selection of top popular products made by Gentec-EO. The contest ends on June 30, 2024.

The Gentec-EO Laser Lab Awards contest is back this year again and is opened worldwide. Optics laboratories in universities and colleges anywhere in the world are invited to submit their application for a chance to win a high-end laser output measurement instrument. 

By adding such professional equipment in their laboratories, educational optics organizations ensure their students have access to the same quality measurement instruments that are used today in the industry, helping students enter the workforce with valuable experience and knowledge.

Applicants, who must be in a role where they provide instruction through laboratory demonstrations or experiments at a university or college, should describe how they intend to use the Gentec-EO measurement instrument in their laboratory and elaborate on the physics principles their students will learn with this material.

Choose your prize from five options:
