Company Acquisition

Photonics Spectra
Oct 2010
In Denmark, Foss A/S of Hillerød has become the main shareholder in Ibsen Photonics A/S of Farum through the purchase of an additional 73 percent of shares from existing shareholders. Foss now owns about 85 percent of Ibsen, and the investment reflects a growing partnership over the past few years between the two companies. Privately owned Ibsen makes holographic, fused-silica transmission gratings and spectrometer modules for telecom, analytical, sensing and laser applications. Family-owned Foss uses Ibsen products in its analytical instruments and, by becoming the main shareholder, the company said, ensures the continued supply of high-quality spectrometers.



GLOSSARY
holography
The optical recording of the object wave formed by the resulting interference pattern of two mutually coherent component light beams. In the holographic process, a coherent beam first is split into two component beams, one of which irradiates the object, the second of which irradiates a recording medium. The diffraction or scattering of the first wave by the object forms the object wave that proceeds to and interferes with the second coherent beam, or reference wave at the medium. The resulting...
spectrometer
A kind of spectrograph in which some form of detector, other than a photographic film, is used to measure the distribution of radiation in a particular wavelength region.
