Attolight started off to revolutionise cathodoluminescence (CL): design top of the line CL instruments that deliver superior performance, maximum ease-of-use and make quantitative cathodoluminescence possible. The Company firmly believes in the potential of cathodoluminescence and aims at establishing the technology as a standard in-line inspection method in semiconductor industry.

Attolight is a company with global presence with systems in Europe, Asia, and North America. The Company  is headquartered at the EPFL Innovation Park where the Attolab is located as well.
