19 August 2014 - US liquid crystal solutions and polarisation optics specialist Meadowlark Optics announced the purchase of Boulder Nonlinear Systems' (BNS) commercial products division without disclosing financial details.
As part of the transaction, the unit, its equipment and employees have been transferred to Meadowlark's site in Frederick, Colorado.
Among the products Meadowlark has added to its portfolio are spatial light modulators (SLMs), optical shutters, polarisation rotators, variable waveplates and the CUBE optical tweezing platforms. BNS' SLM solutions in combination with Meadowlark's optical components will bring a manufacturing focus to the growing SLM market, the buyer said.
