Company Description

Gooch & Housego is a global leader in photonics technology. Our expertise extends from research through the development of prototypes to volume manufacturing and enables innovation and effective manufacturing in the aerospace and defence, industrial, life sciences and scientific research (big science) sectors.

Researching and manufacturing in eleven sites across the USA and UK, G&H are experts across a uniquely broad range of photonic technologies – crystal growth, optical materials processing, acousto-optics and electro-optics, fiber optics, DFB laser modules, precision optics (thin-film coating, birefringent optics, non-linear, planar and aspheric), RF driver electronics in addition to light measurement and calibration solutions.

When combined with the company’s optical, mechanical, electronic and software design capabilities, G&H is able to provide complete optical system design services.
