Photonics 42

Where ideas turn into light

Photonic Startup

Who We Are

Photonics 42 is a private company in the field of photonics founded in Milan. Its team is made up of both experienced professionals and a group of qualified young colleagues. The company provides services that cover all stages of the product, from research to production to testing.

The founders Antonello Vannucci, Mario Montevecchi, Ignazio Piacentini have witnessed both the late 90ies / early 2000 ‘bubble’ as well as the ‘Photonics Renaissance’ linked to the ever-growing demand and requirements for telecom (internet communications), datacom (content management in the cloud) and (more recently) 5G infrastructure, as well as the convergence of photonics and micro-electronics (semicon) as a device enabler for a much broader spectrum of industrial and commercial applications and products.

Our Mission

Ph42’s mission is to support its customers in development, prototyping and pre-series activities for the introduction of new products (NPI) and small and medium volume production services.

The goal of our services is to facilitate access to innovation and the advantages of photonics technologies for start-ups, PMI and large companies, both for companies with limited know-how and to cover process development and small-scale production.
