M Squared makes laser technology more accessible and reliable for scientists and industry. It has developed a fully automated laser system – called SolsTiS – which delivers an ultra-pure light that allows scientists to probe complex quantum systems, including antimatter experiments and atomic clocks. The system scooped the 2015 Innovation Award from the Institute of Physics. In 2015 the company turned over more than £10 million, continuing 40% year-on-year growth for the third consecutive year. Meanwhile founder and CEO Graeme Malcolm was awarded an OBE for his contribution to science and innovation.
