History

FORC-Photonics was established in 2005 having a mission to implement scientific and technical ideas and results of research obtained in FORC RAS (Fiber Optics Research Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences) in into advanced design and technological solutions. These works are mainly associated with the creation of special optical fibers, fiber light sources (including fiber lasers), as well as fiber-optic sensors and complete measuring systems. Since the creation of FORC-Photonics, its employees, who are mostly graduated from leading scientific and technical Moscow universities, installed a number of key technologies that made it possible to create specific fiber-optic elements, application oriented devices and complex fiber-optic systems.
