Thorlabs Acquires Corning QCL and Partners with Daylight Solutions
Component and system provider Thorlabs has continued its expansion up the photonics value chain with the acquisition of Corning’s optoelectronics research group – including significant expertise in quantum cascade laser (QCL) development.
And the company has immediately followed that up with a strategic partnership involving Daylight Solutions, the San Diego firm that has developed QCL-based products for infrared countermeasures and medical screening applications.
The Corning QCL operation, with which Daylight has already enjoyed a long-term collaboration, and related assets including intellectual property will now be transferred to Thorlabs’ semiconductor fabrication facility in Maryland.
