Teem Photonics Names Market Tech as US Distributor

May 2013
GRENOBLE, France, May 10, 2013 — Passively Q-switched microlaser maker Teem Photonics has appointed Market Tech of Scotts Valley, Calif., as its US distributor, Market Tech announced this week.

Privately held Teem Photonics was founded in 1998 as a spinoff of Schneider Electric. The company’s microlasers and photonic integrated circuits (PIC) are used in industrial and biophotonics applications, such as fluorescence, spectroscopy, seeds for fiber lasers, and supercontinuum generation. Its US subsidiary, Teem Photonics USA, is based in Massachusetts.

Market Tech CEO Philip Crowley said Teem’s passively Q-switched, subnanosecond laser technology “will open up a number of new applications that are not possible with conventional diode-pumped solid-state laser technologies.” Market Tech distributes lasers and optoelectronic systems for industrial and research applications.

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.
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
solid-state laser
A laser using a transparent substance (crystalline or glass) as the active medium, doped to provide the energy states necessary for lasing. The pumping mechanism is the radiation from a powerful light source, such as a flash lamp. The ruby and Nd:YAG lasers are solid-state lasers.
