Alpes Lasers SA is a Swiss company specialized in the development and fabrication of advanced light sources in the infrared (IR) spectral range. Our company was founded 24 years ago and was the first company in the world to commercialize Quantum Cascade Lasers. These lasers are becoming increasingly important in gas sensing applications based on IR spectroscopy as they can be designed to target many molecular absorption lines.

Our company is currently developing novel product lines. In particular, our R&D team is working on the development of high power lasers, tunable lasers, and ruggedized packaging for operation in harsh environmental conditions.
