Vescent Photonics, Inc. a privately held company, was founded in 2002 to develop and manufacture technologies in electro-optics, tunable lasers, and electronics for precision laser control. Our patented evanescently coupled liquid crystal waveguides have the industry’s largest tunable optical phase delay enabling wide angle, high resolution 2-D beam steering. Staff experience as researchers at the University of Colorado (JILA) and NIST has allowed us to become a leader in non-mechanical, tunable lasers for spectroscopic sensing in emerging cold atom applications, fully supported with an accompaniment of ultra-low noise electronics for precision laser control and stabilization. The company is wholly owned by the original founders, all of whom have a scientific and/or engineering background as well as extensive business training.
We are located in Golden, CO. Our close proximity to JILA, NIST, the University of Colorado, and several other government laboratories facilitates collaborative development. Our R&D and manufacturing facilities houses an 800 square foot cleanroom for laser and electro-optic assembly, multiple optical laboratories, electronics development facilities and a machine shop. We also are corporate member of the Colorado Photonics Industry Association (CPIA), the Colorado Advanced Photonics Technology Center (CAPT), and the Colorado Nano-fab Laboratory (CNL). All of our electronics and optical assemblies, including all liquid crystal devices, are designed and manufactured in Colorado.
