Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Xi’an, China, Focuslight Technologies Inc. is a fast-growing company that develops and manufactures high power diode lasers (photon generation) and laser optics (photon control) used in various applications in advanced manufacturing, health, research, automotive and information technology. Currently, our business scope is being extended by the development and manufacturing of photonic application modules and systems (photonics application solutions, including LiDAR transmitter modules and UV-L optical systems). With our extensive engineering expertise and know-hows, Focuslight is dedicated to providing customers with well-matched comprehensive solutions that enable our customers’ success in their own business.
In 2017, Focuslight successfully acquired LIMO. Since its inception in 1992, LIMO has been one of the world’s leading manufacturers of fiber coupled modules and optical systems, as well as a pioneer of groundbreaking new photonics production technologies. In 2018, LIMO was winner of the Prism Awards, one of the highest honors in the global optoelectronic industry awarded by the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
Focuslight now has four major businesses: Diode Laser, Laser Optics, Automotive Application (LiDAR) and Optical Systems, with facilities in Xi’an (China), Dongguan (China) and Dortmund (Germany). In total we have facilities of 31,000 square meters (20,000 m² for Xi’an facility and 11,000 m² for Dortmund facility), in which there are over 4,900 square meters (2,900 m² in Xi’an and 2,000 m² in Dortmund ) of clean room space for high power diode lasers and micro optics manufacturing.
Focuslight’s key strength is its passion for technology innovation that enhances the company’s competitiveness in the global market. Our core technologies in eutectic bonding, thermal management, thermal stress control, interface materials and surface engineering, test analysis and diagnosis, line beam shaping, beam transformation, beam field homogenization (for lithography) and wafer-level synchronous structured laser optical manufacturing enable us to gain strong market presence worldwide.
Focuslight is committed to providing our customers with reliable, high performance laser products and superior services. Alongside our global partners in Europe, North America, Israel, Japan, and Korea, we work closely to deliver well-tailored solutions with diode lasers, laser optics, photonic application modules and optical systems that help our customers innovate, grow and succeed.
