  • StockerYale UK Subsidiary Awarded Laser Contract
Sep 2007
StockerYale Inc. of Salem, N.H., a manufacturer of structured light lasers, LED modules and specialty optical fibers, announced yesterday that its UK subsidiary, Photonic Products Ltd. of Hertfordshire, England, was awarded a custom laser-assembly contract with an unnamed manufacturer of point-of-sale (POS) systems. Photonic Products will supply more than 100,000 laser assemblies for a next-generation bioptic POS bar-code scanner system. The company said the approximately $1 million contract is the largest single award in its history. Photonic Products began developing the custom lasers for the system in late 2006 and will ramp up production this quarter. To secure the contract, the company designed a customer laser assembly that could meet an accelerated production schedule, StockerYale said.

bar-code scanner
An optical scanning device designed to read information printed in the form of bars of different size by detection and processing of the varying reflectivity of light in the bar code.
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...
1. A device used to trace out an object and build up an image. One of the most common of these types is video scanning. The scanning takes place inside the television tube as electrons, guided by electron optics, sweep linearly across a tube face coated on the inside with a phosphorescent material. A scanner can convert a paper drawing or photograph into pixels on a display screen. Scanners are also used to relay information in optical data processing. 2. A device that automatically measures or...
