In our own scientific and development work we use mostly Thorlabs products and are really satisfied with their quality and durability. One such example is shown in the image on the right – optical system consisting of stabilized 780 nm ECDL laser and a frequency reference Rb cell. We have also delivered and installed many advanced Thorlabs products, such as extra large optical tables, optical coherence tomography systems, etc. All scientific institutions in Latvia use our delivered Thorlabs products, as well as Tartu University, etc.
