The Photonics Division of Thermo Electron Corporation consists of eight business units that design, manufacture, and market photonics components and products. The Thermo Photonics businesses address all six market segments of the photonics industry: optical components, imaging sensors and systems, lasers, optical instruments, optoelectronics, and fiber optics. And we are among the worldwide leaders in each of these segments.

Our primary business is to OEM accounts. We offer different levels of products and services depending on the needs of each customer.

Each of the eight Thermo Electron Photonics businesses possesses world-class expertise in their specialty. Each business achieved leadership by delivering quality products that are on-target and on time. Our reputation rests solidly on customer satisfaction.
As an alliance of eight businesses producing such a wide range of photonics products plus outsourcing, we can supply mounted and/or assembled components or the entire instrument. The choice is yours.
With our optoelectronic and optomechanical engineering expertise, we assist our customers on a confidential basis in optimizing system design and in the incorporation of our components. We invite you to tap this wide-ranging expertise in the design of your next product.
We employ modern CAD and modeling systems to shorten design cycles and efficiently move new products into production. Our production facilities employ current-art materials control systems and ISO-9000 registered or ISO-9000 like quality systems.

Our teams will work with your product development, production, and purchasing departments to devise the best solution for you.

We feel that our broad range of products, their quality and reliability, and our partnering relationship with our customers make us the ideal one-stop OEM photonics supplier for you.
