Mar 2009
Ultrafast fiber laser manufacturer Fianium of Southampton, UK, has announced that it has hired Colin Seaton as vice president of sales and marketing. Seaton, a 25-year laser industry veteran, spent 18 years at Coherent Inc., primarily focused on business development and strategic marketing of ultrafast nonfiber lasers. “Bringing someone of Colin’s stature and experience to Fianium will add significant strength to our management team as we continue to grow our technology and business,” said Fianium CEO Anatoly Grudinin. “In his time at Coherent, he has proved his ability to successfully develop and penetrate new markets. His strategic skills will be pivotal in maintaining Fianium’s growth and driving the application of our technology within material processing and biomedical markets.”



GLOSSARY
fiber laser
A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
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...
