About Applied Optical Sciences

Applied Optical Sciences, Inc. is a privately held corporation located in Tucson, Arizona. It was founded in April 2010 to perform advanced research and development of photonic devices and their applications.

An important aspect of the company is the ability to quantitatively analyze the physical properties of materials. To develop this materials testing aspect, the company has acquired several unique analytical instruments that allow for detailed materials and surface analysis. Applied Optical Sciences (AOS) has decided to offer some of these capabilities to outside companies and individuals at reduced rates when compared to most analytical service companies. The reason for this is simple: It allows AOS to partially offset overall operating costs by utilizing the equipment during idle time and off-hours. The benefit to outside customers is access to expensive and powerful analytical and materials testing capabilities at very attractive prices.
