Eblana Photonics specialize in the design and production of Laser Diodes in the NIR & MIR.
Eblana Photonics has its origins in advanced research programs in photonics involving Ireland’s leading Universities and Research Centres including Trinity College Dublin and the National Microelectronics Research Centre (now Tyndall National Institute).
The company was founded in 2001 by Dr. James O’Gorman and Prof. John Hegarty both of whom had carried out research in lasers for data communications at Bell Laboratories (the R&D arm of AT&T). Prior to establishing the company, James had managed the Optronics Ireland facility at Trinity College, Dublin whereas John went on to be appointed Trinity’s provost.
Eblana was established out of a common desire to commercialise a scalable laser manufacturing technology which had the capacity to drive down the cost of high performance, single wavelength lasers for diverse mass market applications.
