G&H is an international photonics technology business headquartered in Ilminster, Somerset, UK with operations in the USA and Europe.
A global leader in its field, the company researches, designs, engineers and manufactures advanced photonic systems, components, assemblies and instrumentation for demanding applications in often rugged environments for the aerospace & defense (including space), industrial, life Sciences and scientific research sectors. World leading design, development and manufacturing expertise is offered across a broad, complementary range of technologies.
In February 2013, G&H established the Systems Technology Group (STG) at its Torquay UK facility to function as a separate business unit with a remit to design, develop and prototype systems-level products. The objective was to build a multi-disciplinary team with expertise in mechanical, electronic and software design and modelling and to integrate these technologies with G&H’s expertise in photonics. The STG accelerates G&H’s move up the value chain by providing a strong pipeline of component and sub-systems development, thus offering our customers a complete system design, development and manufacturing service
We want to be part of our customers’ system solution from the start of design work all the way through to volume production. Let us know what your application is and we will show you how we can support you.
Specific area of focus for the STG are currently:
Space Photonics R&D
Photonic Telecom Payloads, Laser Communication Terminals (LCT), Optically-interconnected On-Board Processors
Life Sciences R&D
Developing new metrology systems for medical diagnostics
Reinforcing our market leading position in Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
We are proud to announce that our Boston facility has been awarded a grant to facilitate the extension of the Gooch & Housego Lean Six Sigma Capabilities.
Once the domain of the physicist, laser cooling and trapping of atoms is poised to escape the lab through a project led by Gooch & Housego.
Gooch & Housego now offers a full suite of passive and active components to enable high power, all-fiber laser systems at 2 µm for use in materials processing, surgery and sensing.
G&H was project co-ordinator with project partners II-VI Laser Enterprises, JDSU, ROFIN, Trinity College Dublin, the University of Southampton, and Vivid Components.
Gooch & Housego, the global optical components and systems manufacturer, are pleased to announce that a project in which they are the lead partner has been selected for funding by Innovate UK in the recent call for proposals on “Commercialisation of Quantum Technologies”.
