In Newton, N.J., Thorlabs has completed its three-story, 120,000-sq-ft facility, which will act as the central hub for the company’s sales, service, R&D and manufacturing operations. Subsequent construction phases are planned for the next seven to 10 years and will ultimately expand the company’s space to approximately 300,000 sq ft. The privately held company has experienced double-digit growth since its founding in 1989. It manufactures equipment for the photonics industry, including optics, laser diodes, tunable lasers, fiber optics, optical detectors, motion control equipment, optomechanics and vibration isolation systems. It provides system-level solutions such as complete OCT, confocal and multiphoton imaging systems.

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...
