Chicago, January 9, 2009 (word count: 601) (PressReleasePoint)
High-resolution images are available on request. With the largest
participation to date, the French Pavilion at the Photonics West
2009 exhibition, is bringing 18 of the best and brightest French
companies and trade associations in the industry to show new
products and technologies. From January 27 to 29, the participants
will be exhibiting at two pavilions, one located in Hall 3 and one
located in South Hall 1, in the San Jose Convention Center in San
Jose, Calif. The participating companies include: ALPAO is the
specialist of adaptive optics (from deformable mirror up to complex
adaptive optics systems). Its breakthrough technologies come from
years of research and development in the most demanding
applications. (Booth 6142) Amplitude Technologies produces
ultra-intense femtosecond laser systems with top-performing pulse
duration, temporal contrast, and spatial beam quality. (Booth 6138)
The Bordeaux - Route des Lasers cluster presents Cordouan
Technologies's MIROMA analyzer has a high sampling resolution to
accurately measure high-frequency wavefront distortions for laser
amplification line experiments and ultrashort pulse-generation
applications. (Booth 1714) The leading high power fiber laser
company, EOLITE Systems, is entering in a new era with the
introduction of its third generation of BOREAS high power fiber
laser. (Booth 1617) Fastlite manufactures state of the art
femtosecond lasers pulse shaping and measurement systems operating
at UV, visible and near IR wavelengths. (Booth 6239) Fibercryst
produces laser thin crystal rods with a unique geometry -- very
thin and very long. It offers Nd:YAG or Yb:YAG thin rods with
diameters of 0.3 mm to 2 mm, and lengths up to 500 mm. (Booth 6144)
FOGALE nanotech, an engineering company created in 1983, is now a
worldwide reference in the field of high-accuracy dimensional
metrology, presenting its LISE system for distance and thickness
metrology. (Booth 1613) For over 60 years, Gaggione has offered
comprehensive design, development, and manufacturing capabilities
for the production of thermoplastic-based products and components
for clients worldwide. (Booth 1716) IXFiber develops and produces
specialty fibers and components based on fiber Bragg grating
technology including active or passive double-clad fiber, doped
fibers, co-doped fibers, polarization-maintaining fibers, and FBG
mirrors. (Booth 1708) Microcertec S.A.S combines
precision-grinding, thin-film metallizing ,and laser micromachining
to offer customized carriers or packaging solutions for such
applications as infrared detectors, high-power laser diodes,
semiconductor lasers or LEDs. (Booth 6140) PhaseView's Digital
Wavefront Sensors® (DWS®) are smart and cost-effective optical
instruments providing the highest resolution and dynamic range
available on the marketplace for wavefront analysis and laser beam
profiling. (Booth 6247) PHASICS manufactures high-resolution
wavefront sensors and associated devices and software for laser
characterization and optical metrology. (Booth 1611) The POPSUD
association manages the OPTITEC competitiveness cluster that links
together more than 160 members in the south of France: 60% are
companies and 40% are R&D institutions. It focuses on
monitoring and promoting cutting-edge technology. (Booth 6241)
SAVIMEX designs and manufactures optical components in
thermoplastic polymer materials (PC, PMMA, COC, COP, PEI) by
injection, for optical thin film coatings and for optomechanical
subsystem assemblies. (Booth 1615) SEDI Fibres Optiques offers a
unique range of optical components as well as custom designed
products for applications including biocompatibility, radiation
resistance, power lasers, vacuum chambers, and other severe
environments. (Booth 1710) SESO is specialized in optical and
mechanical design (ZEMAX, Pro-Engineer, FEM analysis with Nastran)
and complete manufacturing, including AIT activities, of any kind
of customized optics and fully integrated optomechanical systems.
(Booth 6146) SILIOS Technologies’s mini-spectrometers (combining
SILIOS microchip, detector, and board) are suitable for a broad
range of chemical analysis and process control applications such as
water treatment, agrifood, medical, oil, or microelectronics.
(Booth 6249) Teem Photonics is the leader in passively Q-switched
microlasers for applications including biophotonics,
instrumentation, remote sensing, as well as micromachining and
marking. (Booth 1609) For more information, please contact:
