InPhotonics is the market leader in fiber optic sampling probes and accessories for Raman spectroscopy. Several RamanProbeTM models are available for analytical, quality control, and process monitoring applications. We also specialize in rugged fiber optic Raman spectrometers for laboratory and field analysis.

InPhotonics is located in Norwood, Massachusetts, along the technology beltway surrounding the city of Boston. Our company emerged from the Spectroscopy Division of EIC Laboratories, a 30 year old R&D organization serving government and industry. Incorporated in the fall of 1998, InPhotonics began its mission with the RS2000 echelle spectrometer and RamanProbe sampling device that were originally developed for military and environmental applications. Our product line has grown to include several probe variations that address research, analytical and process control applications. We now count all major Raman manufacturers as resellers and continue to expand our worldwide sales efforts.

In 1999, the InPhotote spectrometer was introduced for on-site chemical identification. Based upon our research experience, the instrument capabilities were defined to provide accurate discrimination of crystalline solids as well as liquids and mixtures. High quality optical components are packaged into a portable case to provide excellent sensitivity, sufficient spectral range, and desirable resolution at an affordable price.

The Jones and Lamson legacy of making optical comparators allows users to detect deviations as small as the width of a hair in the gauged parts the companies manufacture. This level of preciseness seems like a product of the computer age, but J & L has been making precision products for 165 years.
Explained simply, an optical comparator requires a light source, a mirror, a magnifying lens and viewing screen. The part to be inspected can be magnified over 200 times, making the smallest flaw detectable. Today’s technology may have hanged the components, but the idea is the same as it has been for years.
In 1980 the company that owned J&L split it into the lathe division and the optical comparator division, called J&L Metrology, and moved J&L Metrology to South Carolina. The company was not successful there, having left most of its highly skilled workers back in Springfield. Soon after, Fellows Gear Shaper closed a hundred-year circle and bought Jones & Lamson and returned the Metrology division back to Springfield with great success. Our company operates with subdivisions Vermont Precision, Vermont Precision Machine Services, and Optodynetics.
Today, J & L is privately owned and uses the latest technology in its comparators, including fiber optic edge detectors, CNC capabilities, and screens up to 50 inches in diameter. We still survive on very old fashioned ingredients of quality and durability which have played an important role in our success.
