Tulon Photonics

Frequency noise performance & Tunability: These two features together are sought after in a laser, as it increases bandwidth and sensitivity in modern photonics. Despite the plethora of companies, supply is scarce for industrial-grade and cutting-edge tunable ultra-low-noise lasers.  

Tulon Photonics provides the next generation lasers to revolutionize 21st century photonics.

Communications: Space-based with satellites or Land-based with optical fiber links, lasers with ‘the best’ frequency noise performance and tunability increases bandwidth.  For us end-users, this means faster 100 times faster internet and 10 times less in power consumption. Hence, also sustainable.

Remote Sensing: Remote sensing includes a broad range of applications, whatever it is, lasers are its backbone. Tunable ultra low noise lasers will greatly increase sensitivity, allowing detection at greater distances with better resolution. 

Emerging Quantum Technologies: Cutting-edge lasers are the bread-and-butter for emerging quantum technologies. Whether it's Quantum Communication, Quantum Computing, or Quantum Sensing, emerging quantum technologies require only the best.

IP and Technology

Intellectual Property “SquashLock”  

Invented by Fritz Diorico and Onur Hosten at ISTA

Robust, Modulation-free and cost-efficient laser frequency stabilization method. It can be applied to any kind of laser, making it extremely versatile 

Surpassed the best documented laser frequency stabilization using the current industry standard. 

Can be used in various ways, with the Laser being the most straightforward product.

Patent protect: Two EPs filed and one PCT

You can learn about it more over here [1] and [2].


Revolutionary External Cavity Laser (ECL) using our SquashLock  (400nm - 2200nm):

- Ultra-low Frequency Noise

- Extended-Tuning-Range (ETR)

- Versatile, Compact, and Cost-Efficient


Ultra-low frequency noise while having wide tunability are very hard to obtain in a compact OEM-ready laser. 

So, what sets us apart?

Besides performance, different applications require certain compromises...


We will set ‘the’ standard for highly tunable ultra low frequency noise industrial lasers with scientific performance. 

Quiet Lasers 

for the 21st Century

The relevant noise sources fall in the acoustic range. So, the image you see can be taken quite literally.
