BioPhotonics
Jul 2012
M Squared Lasers of Glasgow, UK, has received £3.85 million (about $6.2 million) of growth capital from Business Growth Fund (BGF) to fund its research and development program and its commercial growth. The UK-based BFG will take a minority stake in the business and will join M Squared Lasers’ board. Founded in 2005, M Squared Lasers supplies lasers and photonic optical instruments for remote sensing, frontier science, biophotonics, defense, microscopy, spectroscopy and metrology applications. “We are seeing considerable expansion in the potential applications for lasers, not least in the defense and medical industries where detection capability is critically important,” said company co-founder Graeme Malcolm.


GLOSSARY
metrology
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
photonics
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...
remote sensing
Technique that utilizes electromagnetic energy to detect and quantify information about an object that is not in contact with the sensing apparatus.
