Sep 2016
Gooch & Housego PLC has won the U.K.’s Queen's Award for Enterprise in Innovation for its Fiber-Q fiber-coupled, acousto-optic modulators.

“We are immensely proud that our innovation has been honored with the Queen's Award for Innovation,” said Adrian Norman, director of engineering for Gooch and Housego. “The Fiber-Q is our flagship product, showcasing cross-site collaboration on photonics innovation to engineer and manufacture a truly unique product which has transformed fiber laser systems technology.”

Designed for fiber lasers, Fiber-Q can be used to reproducibly modify and precisely control laser beams. It brings the flexibility of acousto-optics to the fiber optic community in the form of a small, robust, low-loss package that is easily incorporated into all-fiber architecture without compromising the key benefits offered by fiber-based systems.

Presented by Queen Elizabeth II, The Queen's Awards for Enterprise is an awards program for British businesses and other organizations who excel at international trade, innovation or sustainable development. They are the highest official U.K. awards for British businesses.
