Bay Photonics Managing Director, Glenn George, explained, “We have made major progress with a number of our quantum projects which have led to the need to increase our product development capabilities. We’ve been very fortunate to attract two experienced local photonics engineers who will be a welcome addition to the continued expansion of the Bay Photonics team.”
