Maxion Technologies, Inc. was founded in April, 2000 by a team of scientists and engineers previously employed at the Army Research Laboratory in Adelphi, Maryland. Maxion is located in College Park, Maryland, a few miles outside of Washington D.C. The company delivers lasers and other light emitting products to business and government customers developing solutions for a wide range of applications in chemical sensing, infrared countermeasures, and free-space optical communications.

Maxionís laser products are enabling a new generation of commercial products that make use of the unique interactions between matter and laser radiation at wavelengths between 3 and 12 microns. A few of the many products newly enabled by Maxionís lasers include source modules for infrared countermeasures, sensors of chemical warfare agents, sensitive remote gas leak detectors, ethane breath analyzers, remote detectors of various pollutants, and remote explosives sensors.

Maxion is committed to working closely with customers so that their product development efforts are fully successful.
