2024 EWC Sponsor: Hamamatsu


Light-Powered Innovation

Our mission is to benefit society through the development of technologies that capture, measure, and generate various types of light.

That’s why we re-invest at least 9% of our yearly revenue into research and development – to maintain cutting-edge quality across 90 types of image sensors, light sources, components, and systems with capabilities that span the spectrum from x-ray to infrared.

Key enabling technology to vastly expand industries applying photonics technology

Hamamatsu Photonics takes pride in the fact that photonics technology is a key enabling technology absolutely indispensable for meeting future challenges.

Here at Hamamatsu Photonics we are keenly aware that industries applying photonics technology have an inverted pyramid structure. Our role is to supply a diverse range of photonic devices which puts us at the bottom of the inverted pyramid yet we also provide key enabling technology that enhances performance of end products that rely on our photonic devices.

Along with focusing on evolving technologies for photonic devices that are essential for maintaining a core competitive edge, we will broaden the sphere of our company operations to include optical module products. At the same time, we will expand those industries harnessing photonics technology by co-creating products with our customers and by finding new practical applications for light.

Hamamatsu Sensors and emitters for visible and invisible light

Sensors and emitters for visible and invisible light

We are one of the only companies in the world that develops a wide range of both light sensors, such as photomultiplier tubes and photodiodes, and light sources such as lasers, LEDs, and measurement lamps.

The components we manufacture measure and generate not only visible light, but also ultra-low, ultraviolet, infrared, and x-ray light.

Components, modules, and systems

Our light sensor and light source components are also available as modules and units with dedicated circuits. These devices can be incorporated into systems we develop, such as optical measurement systems, imaging systems, and image analysis systems.

These products are used in a wide range of applications, ranging from everyday technology like smartphones to measurement instruments that support cutting-edge academic research.

Medical Science

Detecting disease as early as possible

Even the healthiest person is susceptible to the risk of future disease, which is why early diagnosis is very important. Hamamatsu Photonics manufactures high-performance devices optimized for medical use such as positron emission tomography (PET), mammography, and x-ray CT. Throughout the world, our devices play an important role in medical examinations by detecting diseases such as cancer in their early stages.

Deciphering the beautiful and dramatic world of cellular biology through imaging

The human body is made up of 60 trillion cells, all working together following the script provided by our genes. Life science researchers are working to unravel the details of this complex story, with every intricate plot twist offering insight into improving human health. By providing advanced scientific tools for imaging, we enable scientists to write whole new chapters about the microscopic cellular dramas that play out every day in our bodies and the living world around us.

Lighting the way for uncompromising quality and safety in modern industries

As the demand for stricter food safety practices and higher quality of industrial products has increased, so has the efficiency of production processes. Our wide x-ray product lineup supports non-contact and non-destructive detection of minute defects in internal structure, as well as contributing to productive manufacturing and inspection processes.
