Chromacity and Market Tech target US laser opportunities

Date Announced: 26 May 2020

Companies combine photonics expertise to expand access to affordable ultrafast laser systems in North America

Chromacity today announced a channel partner agreement with photonics experts Market Tech Inc. With immediate effect, Market Tech will supply Chromacity’s ultrafast laser systems through its industrial and academic research network across North America.

Chromacity’s range of affordable ultrafast laser systems combine high power with very short pulsewidths, making them attractive for multi-photon microscopy, laser-based sensing and FTIR spectroscopy, laser material processing and polymerization.

Phil Crowley, CEO of Market Tech, said: “Chromacity’s ultrafast systems are an exciting new addition to our growing portfolio of laser and photonics solutions. We’re thrilled to be working with Shahida and the team at Chromacity to develop opportunities together.”

Shahida Imani, CEO, Chromacity, said: “The United States is a key territory for Chromacity and we invested a considerable amount of time researching channel partners. After meeting Market Tech during the Photonics West conference in San Francisco earlier this year, it was clear they would become our photonics partner of choice.”

“Market Tech has two decades of photonics experience and extensive knowledge of R&D clusters in the US that can benefit from our fixed and tunable lasers,” added Imani. “The partnership means that we can now provide hands-on support to the increasing demand for our laser systems in the US, which is vital for Chromacity’s strategic growth.” 

Global demand for lasers and photonic-enabled products is driven by the diversity of end-user applications including security and defense, manufacturing, environmental sensing and life science imaging.  

Chromacity was one of the first companies to offer tunable optical parametric oscillator systems that cover both the near-IR and mid-IR wavelength regions. The laser manufacturer sold its first near-IR OPO to the Chinese market earlier this month, as the Edinburgh-based company continues to expand operations globally.
