Company Profile

MetroLaser, Inc., was founded in 1988 by Dr. James D. Trolinger and Dr. Cecil F. Hess with the mission of developing and commercializing new technologies and products in the area of laser-based measurements and diagnostics. With the rapid advancement of lasers and photonics, new market opportunities continue to emerge for a variety of potential products. A highly successful business strategy was developed for combining and leveraging industrial and university resources to establish a team that has since become internationally recognized for innovation and state-of-the-art advancements in the science of measurement. A core team of select scientists and engineers, with extensive experience in laser diagnostics research and development, has been augmented by forming strong, formal working relationships with researchers in universities and with industrial partners. This university/industry collaboration has provided MetroLaser with a wealth of new ideas, technical talent, advanced laboratory capability, and access to existing technology resulting in the generation of solutions to a wide range of problems and development of new products.
