It is uncommon that a company founded only few years ago suddenly becomes widely known not only in the country it was based in, but also in the international arena. This story happened with a high-tech company Brolis Semiconductors founded in 2011, and currently it is well-known not only in Lithuania, but also globally – from Japan to USA. The company specializes in designing semiconductor lasers, laser diodes, and other products. What makes these lasers special? Continue reading “Three Brothers – One Story of Luck (1)” »
