Where Del Mar Photonics product's names come from?

Del Mar means 'by the sea", and Photonics is all about optical waves. So we decided  to choose terms popular in surfing and sailing communities. Our femtosecond lasers, amplifiers and systems are named after popular surf breaks around the world, and many other products names after sailing and nautical terms. Click here to learn more.
