Laser Achievements Capture 2018 Nobel Physics Prize

October 02, 2018 | In the News
The 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics has recognized “groundbreaking inventions in laser physics” during the 1970s and 1980s that set up decades of subsequent scientific advances. »
Plymouth Grating Laboratory is dedicated to making the highest-quality diffraction gratings available today. Our focus is on lasers and laser systems. PGL gratings offer exceptionally high diffraction efficiency and laser damage threshold, combined with superior wavefront error and uniformity over large areas. This performance is made possible by PGL’s exclusive use of the Nanoruler, based on the proprietary Scanning Beam Interference Lithography technology developed at MIT, and PGL’s industry-leading process expertise. The company occupies 20,000 sq. ft. of dedicated manufacturing, engineering, and office space in Carver, MA, just outside of Plymouth, and about 45 miles south of Boston.
