During SPIE Photonics West, PowerPhotonic (booth 5023) will profile its new, high-power, coherent beam combiners; present to EPIC members; and form part of the UK Government’s Department for Business and Trade (DBT), Trade Mission, with the British Consulate in San Francisco. The beam combiners will be displayed alongside other precision, wafer-scale optics products for laser material processing and bio-photonic applications. All products have been designed and manufactured by PowerPhotonic at either its Dalgety Bay (UK) or Sahuarita, AZ (US) sites.
Dr. Stephen Kidd, Head of Sales and Marketing at PowerPhotonic, said, “SPIE Photonics West is an ideal platform for PowerPhotonic to profile its latest coherent beam combiners. Multiple laser beams are merged to create a high-power, high-quality, output beam for ‘directed energy’, laser applications, such as defence, where we offer significant efficiency, size, weight, and power benefits to end users. For the high-volume consumer market, Callum Wreford, Lead Optical Engineer, will present a paper entitled, ‘Successful freeform optics replication of laser machined masters’, at the EPIC (European Photonics Industry Consortium), ‘Pilot Lines and Photonics Innovation Hubs Breakfast’, held during the exhibition. We will also be working closely with, and receiving support from, the British Consulate in San Francisco.
The entire SPIE Photonics West event runs from 27th January to the 2nd February, with the main exhibition running from 30th January to the 1st of February. This is the world’s leading, photonics exhibition, representing the entire photonics supply chain across a broad range of applications, including biomedical, industrial, materials processing, communications and quantum computing. The exhibition is co-located with BiOS Expo for biomedical and biophotonics; Quantum West; and the XR Exhibition for augmented and virtual reality.
PowerPhotonic is a corporate member of SPIE.
