XARION Laser Acoustics GmbH was founded in 2012. The invention of the Membrane-free Optical Microphone dates back to 2006. Its technology was subsequently developed together with Philips, NXP Sound Solutions, and the Knowles Corporation, as well as the Vienna University of Technology  and ultimately led to the founding of XARION. 

At XARION, we are excited by the prospect of providing novel and path-breaking sensing capabilities. It is our mission to make this technology a key factor in such diverse  fields of application as acoustic metrology, non-destructive material testing, medical imaging, and high-volume market applications.

XARION enjoys the dedicated support of a distinguished circle of stakeholders, including XARION’s largest shareholder Hans-Peter Porsche, Member of the Supervisory Board at Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG and Porsche Holding Salzburg, and TRUMPF Venture. 

Prof. Dr. Theodor W. Hänsch, Nobel laureate in laser physics, heads XARION's Scientific Advisory Board pro bono.
