Dear Reader

Within the LASER COMPONENTS Group we visit over 1,000 customers a year, which includes an important exchange of production techniques and customers’ enhanced performance needs. Together we produce world class components at competitive pricing, whilst giving our customers’ instruments the ‘edge’ required to beat their competition. It is a pleasure to be welcomed by our customers to their facilities to see their special expertise, and in some cases, as no one else in the world is working in their area, truly pushing the frontiers to ultimately better and safeguard mankind’s future.

I would say that it is surprising how often customer visits result in these frequently heard words, “I didn’t know you did that.” It is well known that LASER COMPONENTS produce custom components; however, it seems ­customers are less aware of the range of technologies that we cover.
Whilst it isn’t quite ‘anything photonic’ it is nevertheless pretty broad. This is not to say we are a Jack of all trades, but we do have distinct production groups each with their own world-class capabilities. These include laser optics, visible and NIR detectors and lasers, IR detectors, fibre optics and measurement technology, so we are masters of more than one! If there is a demand we continue to explore new horizons to see if this is a good fit for both our company and our customers to develop and invest in a new capability.

It is equally well known that LASER COMPONENTS is a distributor, and indeed we highly value both our fledgling and long standing supplier partnerships, companies that in their own right are world-class, providing products needed by ‘photonic’ customers (I use ‘photonic’ to mean anyone working with photons!). We do have internal expertise but we cannot be expert in everything so it is a win-win collaboration to offer components from our partners this way, especially since when somebody wants a laser module, they generally also want optics, a detector and sometimes pigtailed fibres.

This issue has exciting new feature articles and components within fibre optics, UV LEDs, cinema bright lasers, Si and InGaAs PIN and APDs, and more. May I suggest you sit back and relax with an enlightened read in the following pages and if anything catches your attention we shall be delighted to help.
