It paid $18 million for the privately owned Innolight of Hannover, Germany. The business will operate as part of Coherent’s existing German business unit. A spinout from the Photonics Group at Imperial College London in the UK, Midaz has developed a range of diode-pumped solid-state lasers for micromachining applications, including medical device manufacturing. The purchase price for Midaz was $3.7 million.
