Norcon Technologies


Innovating in Infrared Polymer Optics & Photonics


Technology Areas

  • MWIR / LWIR optics and photonics
  • Polymer optical interconnects
  • Ultra-high-speed optical modulators
  • Nano-photonic circuits
  • Microwave photonics
  • Engineered dielectric materials


Norcon Technologies is commercializing technologies in infrared (IR) polymer optics and photonics. These innovations increase functionality and improve performance in fields such as imaging, sensing, spectroscopy, night vision, renewable energy, and high-speed communications. Breakthroughs in high index polymers, which target applications from 0.7 µm to 12 µm, dramatically reduce size, weight, and cost, while enabling shapes previously available only at shorter wavelengths.  

Additional technologies include nano-photonic circuits, microwave photonics, and engineered dielectric materials. In addition to owning its own intellectual property, Norcon has also exclusively licensed intellectual property from the University of Arizona.  

The company is based in Tucson AZ and is privately held.
