Vescent Photonics Summer 2015 Family Portrait

Vescent Photonics, Inc. a privately held company, was founded in 2002 to develop and manufacture technologies in waveguide, 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.

 

Facilities

Clean-room-1

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.
