Market Response Endorses Zecotek's New CW Narrow-Band Ti: Sapphire Lasers

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 15, 2009) - Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ZMS)(FRANKFURT:W1I), a developer of leading-edge photonics technologies for medical, industrial and scientific markets, today announced that the market response to its new Continuous Wave Narrow-Band Ti: Sapphire Laser, the Tisarius-D-scan narrow-line laser, endorses Zecotek's growing reputation as a provider of leading edge photonic research tools. Recent sales have included the prestigious University of Tuebingen (Germany), the Technische Universitat Dortmund (Germany) and Panasonic (Japan).

"We are very pleased with our progress in penetrating this very selective market in high value lasers," said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek. "Our new auto-scanned narrow-line T&D-scan and ultra-narrow-line modules are valuable tools in the research and development of new materials and manufacturing processes. Our ability to bring these new lasers to market on time and under budget offers another example of our strength in the innovation and ability to commercialization of leading edge photonic technologies."

Zecotek's Tisarius-D-scan Narrow-Line Laser integrated system with computer control and integrated high-precision wave meter were acquired by the Technische Universitat Dortmund and Panasonic. This integrated system represents a cost-effective solution for a smart source of radiation tuneable within a wide range of wavelengths which is an important feature for spectroscopy of semiconductor materials and other advanced material, and other scientific applications.

Zecotek's proprietary TIS-SF-777 Ti: Sapphire Laser and FD-SE-07 Resonant Frequency Doubler has been ordered by the University of Tuebingen. This tandem device has the ability to deliver a super-narrow line of powerful radiation in the blue spectral range and provides a new tool for application in fields such as nanolithography, nanostructured materials and quantum physics where single atoms and ions are cooled, trapped, and precisely manipulated using laser beams.

Zecotek's Continuous Wave Narrow-Band Ti:Sapphire lasers are manufactured under contract by Tekhnoscan J.S. of Novosibirsk, for Zecotek Laser Systems Pte Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Zecotek Photonics.

Zecotek Photonics Inc. has also granted 45,000 stock options to a consultant of the company for their contribution to the Company. The exercise price is set at $0.65 and will expire on June 15, 2014. The stock options are subject to regulatory approval.
