Prototyping of Optical Devices and Systems
We identify the application's requirements and define the designs that comply with its specifications. We can re-design and fine tune existing products to better fit the application’s needs.
We can offer an independent and confidential exploration of new ideas and their realization by leveraging existing know-how to conduct studies and assess the feasibility of new concepts or future generations of existing products.
for Photonics Manufacturing
We can help our clients develop, troubleshoot and manage existing processes for fabrication, packaging, testing, assembly and integration of optical components or subassemblies into systems and final products.
We leverage many years of experience in the semiconductor photonics industry and collaborations with top academic and industrial partners for prototype and product development.
Vendor Selection, Quality Control,
Once specifications, designs, and processes are defined, we can assist our clients with selecting and managing the supply chain and implementing the best procurement options for their products, including inspection and screening procedures and requirements for vendors or for in-house manufacturing. Especially with new technologies this can be a critical step towards the reliability and steady operation of new products.
Optical sensing, non-invasive diagnostics, personal health, environmental monitoring both in industrial and home settings, and the underlying technologies that enable this essential part of our future interconnected infrastructure, are becoming ubiquitous. A few of these technologies operate in the infrared region of the spectrum and leverage the extremely high sensitivity, eye-safety, security, and real-time nature of infrared light to achieve measurements and extract information that was unavailable before now.
Evolution photonics aims to bridge the gap between ideas, technologies, and users by helping manufacturers developing products based on IR laser technologies and by helping users understand the details of their application and select the right solution for their problems.
Years of Expertise
Mariano Troccoli, Ph.D. Founder & President
Mariano founded Evolution Photonics in 2017 as a result of a 20-year long career in infrared photonics. Previously he was the director of product development at AdTech Optics Inc., a small company that he joined in 2009 which under his tenure grew to be one of the foremost players worldwide in mid-IR photonic devices. Before joining Adtech he founded Argos Tech in Santa Clara (CA), a VC-funded spin-off of Agilent Technologies. In the 5 years before that, he was research fellow at Harvard University and Bell Labs, working with prof. Federico Capasso, the inventor of QC Lasers. He co-authored more than 100 scientific publications, filed more than 10 patents, and is regularly invited as speaker to international conferences and events. Dr. Troccoli holds a M.S. in Theoretical Physics (magna cum laude), and a Ph.D. in Quantum Electronics, both from the University of Bari, in Italy. He is a fellow of the OSA and a senior member of IEEE and SPIE. He received the “Young Investigator Award” of the Euro-MRS in 2001 and was nominated for the SPIE “Prism Awards” in 2013 and for the Intesa-SanPaolo award on Open Innovation and Entrepreneurship in 2017.
