Software, as well as products and services provided by Metrolux have been enthusiastically received worldwide in industry and scientific research. As an example, Metrolux is able to measure the homogeneity and the quality of laser beams, which are used in surgery requiring advanced medical technology such as "The Optical Scalpel", which provides high speed measurement devices that provide microand nanometer precision. Metrolux was founded in 1995 in Göttingen. Contrary to general export marketplace realities and worldwide business conditions, Metrolux is projected to realize visible export growth in 2009. Metrolux has not only increased its distribution in the german speaking market place (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) but also in international markets, especially in Korea and Japan. At the moment Metrolux is urgently in need of qualified software developers.
