History

 

Helia Photonics Ltd formed in 2002 with an aim to meet a global need for specialised facet coating of diode lasers.

Initially focussing on ultralow anti-reflection (AR) coatings for external cavity lasers, Helia quickly expanded its range, adding laser lifetime-enhancing protective facet coatings and optical coatings for fibre-ends, micro-optics and supporting services for diode lasers.

The combined technical know-how and equipment capabilities are brought together in an 8,000 ft² purpose-built, state-of-the-art facility at Rosebank Park, Livingston in Scotland - conveniently located between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
