How lasers in space help you find your way

Above our heads, three satellites orbit the Earth. The satellites form the Swarm mission. Onboard the satellites are some complex equipment with the cool name “Absolute Scalar Magnetometers”. Their job is to measure changes in the Earth's magnetic field. The data is used to create the World Magnetic Model – a map of the Earth’s magnetic field. Read more

Ultrafast laser for multi-photon excitation

We are proud to launch the second-generation ORIGAMI HP at Photonics West/BiOS 2019. This compact mode-locked femtosecond laser provides transform-limited output pulses at more than 4 W with pulse durations less than 120 fs and a repetition rate of 80 MHz at 1050 nm. Read more

Koheras HARMONIK

New laser system for cutting-edge quantum optics

The new Koheras HARMONIK system offers you a high-power, frequency-converted and ultra-low noise laser system offering up to 7 W output. With a market leading low phase noise and narrow linewidth at 775-780 nm, it is ideal for ultracold atom applications. Read more

Look, no hands!

A new, advanced optical technology makes it possible to characterize ultra-thin materials without touching them.
The technology has the potential to revolutionize the semiconductor industry and create brand new opportunities within sustainable electronics and data management. Read more

Optical fibers are the basis of data networks

Faster, greener Internet coming up

When you send a cute kitten video; your favorite tune; or a photo of your newborn baby to a friend, do you think about the path it travels? Do you take for granted that your friend receives it instantly? Read more

Supercontinuum lasers in pursuit of a cleaner world

In the EU, exhaust particle emission from vehicles is regulated for the benefit of the environment. However, with evolving engine technologies such as Gasoline Direct Injection, a large portion of the emitted particles are extremely small.

With a size below 23 nm, they are simply too small to be detected with existing technologies. We need to invent new measurement technologies. Read more
