Chromacity announces growth-funding round of £1.2 million

Date Announced: 16 Sep 2021

Chromacity CEO, Shahida Imani, will participate in two panel discussions with Photonics Scotland and the UK’s Photonics Leadership Group (PLG).

Photonics Scotland is hosting an Opening Up Photonics event, which is an initiative, designed to increase gender inclusivity within the industry. Shahida will join the Opening Up Photonics panel discussion, between 10:00 – 12:00 on Wednesday 29th September, to talk about the measures taken at Chromacity to promote the importance of inclusion and diversity.

The Photonics Leadership Group will host a panel discussion on the UK Photonics Innovation Chain, between 13:30-14:30 on Wednesday 29th September. Shahida Imani will join the discussion and share an industrial insight into the UK photonics ecosystem to help answer the question; what can we do better?

Visit Chromacity (stand number 516) to learn how our fixed wavelength femtosecond lasers and picosecond optical parametric oscillators (OPO) are used as a powerful and efficient light source to drive advances in microscopy, spectroscopy and quantum applications.

Chromacity has announced it has completed a growth-funding round of £1.2 million. Contributors to the round include existing investors, Kelvin Capital, EOS and the Scottish Enterprise, as well as new investor ESM Investments.

The firm, which develops ultrafast fiber lasers for a wide range of scientific and industrial applications, will use the funding to expand the company’s workforce, particularly within its manufacturing and R&D divisions.

Shahida Imani, CEO of Chromacity, said, “This new funding will enable us to expand our team and accelerate Chromacity’s growth, both commercially and technologically.

To counteract the challenges placed on laser manufacturers by Covid-19, Chromacity has developed a remote installation capability for its optical parametric oscillators (OPOs).
