"We're looking forward to expanding our European sales through the joint marketing agreement with Koheras," said Don Rich, Aculight's CEO. "Koheras has an established record of fiber laser sales in Europe, and their existing customer base is a perfect fit for our Argos product. As a long-standing supplier to Aculight, they also have a unique understanding of Argos technology and are highly qualified to promote it to the European scientific and industrial R&D community."

The Argos product offers enabling capability for many high-resolution spectroscopy applications, including photoacoustic and cavity-ringdown spectroscopy, atom trapping, chemical sensing, and medical applications.
Argos is a fiber-pumped, singly resonant OPO that provides continuous tuning from 1.4 to 2 microns and from 2.3 to 3.9 microns using three interchangeable, pre-aligned, wavelength converter modules. Koheras' single-frequency fiber lasers are an integral part of the system.
