KMLabs has an origin rather unique as a laser company-a company started by popular demand. In 1990, Henry Kapteyn and Margaret Murnane began their careers as Assistant Professors together at Washington State University. Their goal was to make it possible to ... more.
Founders, Leadership Team, and Board of Directors | KMLabs
Henry C. Kapteyn, Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Henry C. Kapteyn is co-founder of KMLabs Inc. and CEO. Henry is well-established as a leading researcher in the area of ultrafast optical science, and is Professor of Physics and a fellow of JILA, a joint NIST/University institute at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He received a BS from Harvey Mudd College in 1982, an MS from Princeton University in 1984, and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1989. He and his wife and long-term collaborator, Margaret Murnane, are well known for their research in femtosecond lasers, and for understanding how to coherently upconvert this light to make a "tabletop x-ray laser" that they have applied to pioneering studies of material behavior at short length- and time-scales. He has published more than 200 papers (h-index 59), and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the Optical Society of America, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His awards include the Adolph Lomb Medal of the OSA in 1993, the Ahmed Zewail Award of the ACS in 2009, the R.W. Wood Prize of the OSA in 2010, the Arthur Schawlow Prize of the APS in 2010, the Willis Lamb Award in Quantum Electronics in 2012, and membership in the National Academy of Sciences.
Henry Kapteyn elected to National Academy of Sciences
Henry Kapteyn, Founder and CEO of KMLabs, has been elected to membership in the National Academy of Sciences, the academy announced on April 30, 2013.
Wyvern HE | KMLabs
KMLabs CEO and Founder, Henry Kapteyn, accepting the 2013 CLEO / Laser Focus World Innovation Award for the Wyvern HE.
Presenting the award is W. Conard Holton, Associate Publisher / Editor in Chief of Laser Focus World. Utilizing a simple single-stage design the Wyvern HE is a cut above its closest competitors that require more complex two-stage or dual-head architectures in order to reach similar power levels. In the Wyvern-HE we have combined our exclusive, patented, cryogenic cooling technology with a proprietary, regenerative cavity design.

Kapteyn is founder and CEO of Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories Inc., and has been a Professor at the Department of Physics, and a Fellow of JILA, at the University of Colorado since 1999. Henry received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1989, in the field of x-ray and short-wavelength laser physics. Prof. Kapteyn is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and a Fellow of the Optical Society of America, the American Physical Society, and the AAAS.
KMLabs was established in 1994 by Professor Margaret M. Murnane and Professor Henry C. Kapteyn.
Realizing that this device could make ultrafast technology accessible to non-experts for a multitude of applications, Murnane and Kapteyn published a step-by-step guide explaining how-to build the laser. Responding to widespread interest in their laser design, Margaret Murnane and Henry Kapteyn founded KMLabs in 1994. Professors Murnane and Kapteyn have worked at the forefront of ultrafast laser research for over 20 years. Henry C. Kapteyn Chief Executive Officer Dr. Henry Kapteyn is CEO at KMLabs, a JILA Fellow, and a Professor of Physics and ECE at the University of Colorado. He received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. He was previously a member of the Faculty of Physics at Washington State University and the University of Michigan. Prof. Kapteyn has received a number of awards including the National Science Foundation Young Investigator award, the OSA Adolph Lomb Medal, and (with Prof. Murnane) the 2009 Ahmed Zewail Award in Ultrafast Science and Technology of the American Chemical Society.
