Toptica acquires Azurlight Systems

News

Power boost for all wavelengths: tuneable diode lasers merge with high power fibre amplifiers

Germany-based laser manufacturer Toptica Photonics AG has entered into a definitive purchase agreement to acquire the majority of the shares of French fibre laser technology company Azurlight Systems SAS.

Azurlight will continue its fibre laser business under the new name Toptica Photonics SAS and form the French hub of the Toptica brand. The parties have agreed to maintain confidentiality regarding the purchase price. The transaction is subject to the foreign direct investment (FDI) approval by French authorities.

The combination of tuneable diode lasers, high quality frequency conversion technology and low-noise high power amplifiers will serve customers working in quantum technologies, biophotonics, and industrial metrology.

Nicholas Traynor, from Azurlight Systems said: “We are proud to join the Toptica group and excited about the opportunities this offers for the next stage in our development. Putting together the proven technologies of narrow band and tuneable diode lasers with our lowest noise fibre amplifiers will be mutually beneficial for the product families of both companies. Together with the existing global sales and service network of Toptica, we will be able to serve customers’ needs in quantum technology markets and beyond. We enthusiastically look forward to the years to come.”

Wilhelm Kaenders, from Toptica Photonics adds: “We are very pleased to welcome Azurlight Systems under the Toptica brand, adding best-in-class fibre lasers and amplifiers to our product portfolio. We envisage further strengthening of fibre laser development in France and strong common product development including our subsidiaries in the US and Germany. This will grow our offering for industry and scientific research, especially in the growing markets of quantum computing and biophotonics and industrial metrology.”
