EKSPLA’s dedication to their team mirrors our own commitment to our staff, fostering a collaborative environment that drives us towards our shared goals in the photonics industry.

What This Means for Our Customers

This partnership means our customers will have access to EKSPLA’s wide range of products including, picosecond lasers, nanosecond lasers, tunable wavelength systems and more.

Working with Photon Mission as a distributor in the BeNeLux region ensures a more personalized service, understanding of local market dynamics, and faster on-ground support. In essence, this partnership combines global technological prowess with local market understanding, delivering superior value to our customers in the BeNeLux region.


We want to highlight two products that we believe will be very interesting for applications in the BeNeLux:

Tunable lasers – NT262
Typical application- metrology (calibration of detectors), LIF, photoacoustic, TOF, mass spectroscopy and others
