Spectroscopy and imaging R&D company OptoKnowledge (Torrance, CA) has spun off its hollow-fiber business into a new company, Guiding Photonics. 

In 2012, OptoKnowledge transitioned hollow-fiber technology developed at Rutgers University to offer hollow-fiber fabrication, which has steadily grown over the past 8 years.

Guiding Photonics will continue to advance the state of the art and push the technology of low-loss, robust hollow fibers and associated components, including continued development of plastic fibers, single-mode fibers, fiber bundles, and optical assemblies.

All of the principals leading the fiber development at OptoKnowledge are part of the Guiding Photonics team. As an independent company, Guiding Photonics will be able to focus exclusively on customer needs and in the coming months plans to launch a series of new products for laser delivery (spanning UV to far-infrared), signal collection, and tunable laser absorption spectroscopy.
