WORK AT M SQUARED...
ALL THE TIME
We research, design and manufacture world-class lasers and advanced photonic
systems for use in a myriad of academic, commercial and industrial applications. Our high
performance systems are critical enablers in fundamental physics research and they’re
also behind behind a number of ‘world firsts’, from the first demonstration of ‘teleportation’
to the first stable ultra-cold molecules.
Our technology is also being used to enable advances in the commercial world, most
recently in the detection and classification of gases in the oil and gas industry and threat
detection for the military. Constantly covering new ground, we’re dedicated to innovation
too, actively involved in collaborative research projects and working on next generation
Founded in 2006, by laser experts Dr Graeme Malcolm OBE and Dr Gareth Maker, we’ve
quickly grown to become a leader in our field. It’s exactly this growth, that keeps us on the
look out for great people to join our team.
“I’m constantly learning here; there’s a
culture of collaboration, and it’s the variety in
my role that makes everyday interesting.”
