Our story

Established in 2019, LumIR Lasers is the culmination of a decade-spanning partnership between researchers at Quebec City’s Center for Optics, Photonics and Lasers and the world’s foremost provider of mid-IR optical fibers, Le Verre Fluoré inc. Nested at the heart of the Canadian optical hub, we finally bring the product of our collaborative innovation out of the lab – and into the hands of people.
