COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Jan. 17, 2011 — Ibsen Photonics announced the appointment of Henrik Skov Andersen as its new chief executive officer, effective Feb. 1, 2011.

Torben Jacobsen, the company’s current CEO, announced three years ago to the board of directors his intention to step down in the spring of 2011, shifting his focus to board matters.

Over the next few months, Andersen and Jacobsen will work together to ensure for a smooth management shift, and after the transition Jacobsen will take his place on the board.

Prior to joining Ibsen, Andersen served as the CEO for Netgroup Holding. Before that, he held positions at Coloplast, Scandinavian Mobility, Timken and McKinsey.

GLOSSARY
fused silica
Glass consisting of almost pure silicon dioxide (SiO2). Also called vitreous silica. Frequently used in optical fibers and windows.
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.  
transmission grating
A transparent diffraction grating that serves to transmit light.
