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)
Gooch & Housego are proud to announce that the Fiber-Q was given the prestigious Institute of Physics (IOP) Award for Innovation at a ceremony at the London based Institute in October.
On 3 December, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) funded Hayabusa 2 asteroid exploration mission launched on a six year mission to collect geological samples from the (162173) 1999 JU3 asteroid – an Apollo or “near earth” asteroid.
Realization of high performance photo receivers with high power handling capabilities has long been recognized as a critical and missing element to achieving high-fidelity transmission of analog (RF) signals over fiber optic links.
Demand for Gooch & Housego’s industry leading Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) products continues to grow.
