manufacturing capacity of opto-semiconductors
Hamamatsu, Japan – April 4, 2016 – Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has
announced the construction of a new building no. 1 at its Shingai
Factory to increase its manufacturing capacity of opto-semiconductor
components. The new building will be used for post-processing steps
(assembly and inspection) that will result from sales growth.

the new building in Hamamatsu City. Construction is scheduled for
completion in March 2017.
Hamamatsu Photonics – Inspiring the next
generation of scientists
Hamamatsu Photonics is reaching out to young students to both
inspire and increase their interest in science and, more importantly,
to encourage them to study science and attract them to a future
career in the Photonics Industry.
As part of the outreach, Hamamatsu Photonics UK presented 13 schools
from the Hertfordshire area with free laser kits which contained lasers,
light emitting diodes, mirrors and diffraction gratings and these kits
demonstrate how photons behave.
Company News
Craige Palmer and Chantelle Withey presented the kits to the school
teachers and as part of the event, also gave them hands-on training.
The teachers were very enthusiastic and were eager to take the kits
back to the classroom to let the students try them.
It is very important to outreach to students and encourage more
people to be interested in science, as there is a real shortage of
science graduates. Our Company believes that this is just one way
in which we can support this.
