Address: 30 Brunel Road,, St. Leonards on Sea, East Sussex TN38 9RT, UK
Long Business Description:

Thermic Edge Ltd is a design and manufacturing business with specialist knowledge of every kind of laboratory heating applications, from basic elements or sample heaters, to complete hot stages with rotation, manipulation and substrate bias. We have standard ranges of stand alone sample heaters and flange mounted sample heaters with feedthroughs incorporated. Our sample heaters and hot stages are used in a very wide range of laboratory applications including, PVD sputtering, thermal deposition, e-beam, CVD, MOCVD, PLD, ion beam implanters, carbon nanotubes and graphene growth.

Thermic Edge Ltd can offer a range of sample heater controllers to accurately control any kind of hot stage or sample heater. Heater controllers are fitted with Eurotherm PID temperature controllers as standard, but we can incorporate any type of controller that our customers might specify.

Thermic Edge Ltd  also has a range of high temperature laboratory vacuum / inert atmosphere furnaces with graphite hot zones. These furnaces can heat a crucible or wafer to 2100C. All furnaces are plc controlled and are fully interlocked, with simple one button pump / vent operation. A choice of PID temperature controllers enables a high degree of control and programmable temperature ramping and cooling functions. Dual zone temperature control on flat wafer furnaces gives very high uniformity across the substrate.
We can offer a complete range of technical ceramic materials and components including Shapal, Macor, Alumina, Boron Nitride, Aluminium nitride and Quartz. We can also offer CVD produced ceramics such as pyrotytic boron nitride PBN and pyrolytic graphite.

Long Business Description:

UAB MGF “Šviesos konversija” (known as Light Conversion on international market) is the world’s leading manufacturer of wavelength-tunable ultrafast coherent light sources based on optical parametric amplifiers (OPA) and frequency mixers. TOPAS and ORPEHUS OPA systems are enabling cutting-edge ultrafast research, with more than 2,000 units installed world-wide. Established in 1994, as a spin-off from Vilnius University Laser Research Center, Light Conversion has built its strength on deep knowledge in the field of optical parametric generation and amplification accumulated by its people in general and its leader Dr. Romualdas Romas Danielius in particular.

Highly qualified and experienced specialists, together with an early vision that ultrafast wavelength-tunable sources would be in demand (pumped by what were then cutting-edge femtosecond and picosecond Ti:sapphire amplifiers) allowed Light Conversion to offer an innovative approach to commercial ultrafast optical parametric generators and amplifiers. Since the very start of production and many years ahead of its competitors, Light Conversion “TOPAS” series of parametric amplifiers have offered numerous pioneering solutions such as very compact, non breadboard based construction, computer controlled wavelength tuning and vast flexibility in terms of input energy and pulse duration. Now, over 2,000 “TOPAS” series systems, many of those tailored to meet very specific customer requirements, have been installed worldwide.

Starting from 2006, Light Conversion has introduced PHAROS diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) ultrafast laser system. Featuring market-leading femtosecond pulse output parameters along with robust, industrial design, PHAROS has demonstrated remarkable success with industrial and scientific customers. PHAROS femtosecond laser are used in material processing and micromachining, and coupled with ORPHEUS parametric amplifiers, find many applications in non-linear spectroscopy particularly at high pulse repetition rates.

Light Conversion is a private company with >110 employees. The company is based in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. Design, R&D, and production are done in our new state-of-the-art facility on the outskirts of Vilnius, and in cooperation with Vilnius University Faculty of Physics.
