Since its founding in 1975, Continuum has developed a full line of high energy solid state laser products that are now in use in scientific, industrial and commercial applications. These applications range from spectroscopy, materials analysis and Particle Imaging Velocimetry to X-ray generation and high power plasma physics.

Headquartered in San Jose California, Continuum manufactures and markets its complete family of laser products worldwide.

On July 15, 2014, Continuum Inc. was acquired by Amplitude Group. As part of Amplitude, Continuum remains committed to serving its core customer base with new products and capabilities.
