Nov 2005
BRIDGETON, Mo., Nov. 11 -- Nuvonyx, a manufacturer of high-power direct-diode laser components, subsystems and sources for use in aerospace, defense, industrial manufacturing and research applications, has acquired Thales Laser Diode (TLD), a laser division of Paris Orsay, France-based Thales Group, and will change its name to Nuvonyx Europe SA.

"This acquisition will allow us to expand our product line to now offer both actively and passively cooled CW (continuous wave) and QCW (quasi continuous wave) laser diode devices. This acquisition also provides Nuvonyx with an immediate strategic presence in the European market, which is a critical link in our diode component and industrial laser system future growth strategy," said Nuvonyx President and CEO Mark Zediker in a written statement.

GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
