Meadowlark Optics Inc. recently acquired the Commercial Products Group of Boulder Nonlinear Systems. Acquired product lines include spatial light modulators (SLMs), optical shutters, polarization rotators, variable waveplates and the CUBE optical tweezing system. Meadowlark said it would incorporate the SLM product line with its own precision optical components. The Commercial Products Group, including equipment and staff, has been moved to Frederick. Boulder Nonlinear Systems will now devote its efforts mostly to research and development of nonmechanical beam-steering devices such as liquid crystal polarization grating beam deflectors, new backplane developments and hardware improvements to the existing SLM product line.
