MPBC is part of the “GuideStar Alliance,” contributing the Raman fiber amplifier and fiber laser pumps to the most powerful fiber laser guide star systems used in astronomy.

The Raman fiber amplifier technology was first developed and patented by the European Southern Observatory. MPB Communications Inc. licensed the technology, and have collaborated to develop reliable, maintenance-free, ruggedized systems installed at ESO’s 4 Laser Guide Star Facility (4LGSF) in Paranal, Chile; KECK, Gemini North, and Subaru Observatories in Mauna Kea, Hawai’i; Gemini South in Cerro Pachón, Chile.

We have an expanded single-frequency amplification portfolio, and are able to offer virtually any wavelength where silica-based fibers are transparent, supporting novel applications for the scientific and commercial research community.
