Comapany Overview

HORIBA Jobin Yvon was founded nearly 190 years ago and is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of analytical and spectroscopic systems and components. We are part of the HORIBA group which has sales of $1,000 million and more than 4,700 employees worldwide.

Optical spectroscopy has played a key role in the development of modern physics, from the early confirmation of quantum mechanics predictions of the spectrum of hydrogen to the observation of stars and interplanetary matter by astronomers refining their theory of the universe. Today, optical spectroscopy has become a routine method for the physicists and the astronomers, but also gained acceptance with chemists, biologists and metallurgists, amongst others.

At the heart of an optical spectroscopy apparatus, the single device most closely associated with spectroscopic performance is the diffraction grating. It is therefore no surprise to see that the study and manufacture of diffraction gratings remain the domain of excellence of HORIBA Jobin Yvon and a select few competitors worldwide.

With its R&D Centres located in Edison (New Jersey, USA) and in Longjumeau (France, in the heart of the French Optics Valley), HORIBA Jobin Yvon employs more than 70 Ph.Ds, an unequalled force focusing on the advancement of diffraction gratings and their applications to optical spectroscopy. HORIBA Jobin Yvon can call upon the Kyoto R&D Centres of its parent HORIBA, and in particular its “Optical Frontier” project studying nanosystems. Each year the HORIBA Jobin Yvon R&D teams are granted more than 10 patents worldwide.
