Since its founding in 1986, Light Age, Inc. has been the inventor, innovator, and preeminent developer of alexandrite laser technology and several other advanced laser technologies. It has also played a major role in pioneering and establishing numerous advanced applications based on solid-state laser media and nonlinear optical processes. Today, Light Age is the leading supplier of alexandrite laser systems worldwide for almost every application from fundamental research to laser hair removal to atmospheric lidar. Its products are sold under its own name brands and in OEM and embedded products distributed by other device manufacturers. In addition to its volume product manufacturing, Light Age develops custom laser systems and new laser capabilities under contract and in strategic partnerships. Light Age frequently develops laser systems with flexible and/or highly specialized capabilities for applications requiring new, difficult, and sometimes seemingly impossible laser characteristics.
In 1977 Light Age scientists discovered the world's first commercially useful, tunable solid-state laser technology. Since then they have continued to make landmark advancements that have permitted the critical control of almost all laser characteristics: power, pulse energy, wavelength, bandwidth, spatial and temporal pulse properties, and highly efficient directly diode-pumped laser systems. Laser systems based on these advancements have been developed to serve a myriad of specific applications in the medical, industrial, scientific, and government systems markets. Among its many honors, Light Age was selected as one of the very first awardees of the US Department of Commerce’s Advanced Technology Program. In 2003 Light Age moved to its new 40,000 square foot headquarters at 500 Apgar Drive, Somerset, NJ 08873, approximately 35 miles (60 km) from New York City. Light Age continues to serve the needs of its many thousand customers, large and small: These include many agencies of the US Government, international research organizations, universities and governmental research laboratories across the globe, many of the world’s largest corporations, as well as small start-up entrepreneurships. The Company is strongly committed to serving its customers' needs and offers a high level of support services in addition to expert consultation on virtually every laser device and application. Light Age routinely solves "impossible" laser and laser applications problems and develops new lasers and new laser technology to meet the world's ever increasing laser needs.
