12 Cluster Report Optics and Photonics – Laser Technology The Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration IZM is working on the integration of modern laser technology into industrial applications. Its service range includes consulting, process development, up to technological solutions. The laser technologies developed by IZM comprise special glass fibres, the attachment of lens arrays to laser diode bars with several emitters and using CO 2 lasers to drill holes in glass. Such through-hole plating in glass are key technologies for thermal and electrical connections. Fully glass-based micro-optical bench for compact diode laser modules with beam rotation and merging of multiple channels onto one optical fibre © Fraunhofer IZM Researchers at the Institut für Optik und Atomare Physik (IOAP) at TU Berlin are also working on a broad spectrum of topics. Several working groups are doing research on light optics, laser physics, laser molecule spectroscopy, environmental physics, spectroscopy, optical technologies, electron microscopy and holography, as well as X-ray spectroscopy, analysis, and optics. These methods are then applied to special experimental investigations in the fields of atomic, molecule cluster, and solid state physics. 4x25 Gbps/channel on-board transceiver on glass interposer with through-hole plating and integrated lens arrays © Fraunhofer IZM The Institute of Solid State Physics (IFKP) at TU Berlin is also researching numerous questions related to optics and photonics. Its working groups are investigating micro- and nanolasers, optoelectronics, and quantum devices, as well as new technologies with nanophotonic components. institut_fuer_festkoerperphysik/parameter/en/ The Institute for Optics/Photonics Research at Humboldt University Berlin has working groups on such topics as nano-optics, optical metrology, attosecond physics, nonlinear quantum optics, and ultra-fast optics. Lasers play a decisive role in almost every aspect of this research.

Cluster Report Optics and Photonics – Laser Technology 13 The Department of Chemistry in Potsdam is also conducting a lot of research using lasers. Modern laser spectroscopy and optical sensor technology for laboratory, analytics, diagnostics and process control are the core competencies of the Physical Chemistry Working Group at the University of Potsdam (UPPC). The group works in the fields of photo physics and photochemistry, optical sensor technology, biomonitoring, and environmental chemistry and analysis. Together with the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP), UPPC runs the research and innovation centre innoFSPEC Potsdam. The work at innoFSPEC is described in more detail in chapter 2.4 “Optical Analytics”. Companies with Laser Expertise CO 2 lasers can produce slender and deep weld seams that withstand the highest mechanical loads. © TRUMPF Biophysics is a particular strength in the photonics research being conducted in the Department of Physics at FU Berlin. Every modern optical method available is used there to decipher the secret of life. In addition, the department has working groups on optoelectronics, near-field optics, and molecular biophysics with photonic materials. One of the international heavyweights on the laser market is the TRUMPF Group, which also maintains a laser diode research and development centre in Berlin. The long-established company with tradition has more than 11,000 employees worldwide and is one of the world’s leading suppliers of laser systems of all kinds. With the Berlin site in Adlershof, TRUMPF intends to further expand its technology and market leadership in high-performance diode lasers. For this purpose, the TRUMPF Laser GmbH in Adlershof conducts research and development in the high-tech fields of assembly technology, semiconductor physics, and laser physics. A semiconductor laser developed in cooperation with the FBH in Adlershof exceeded the one-kilowatt threshold in 2017. Several research groups at the University of Potsdam are also working in the field of photonics. Their focus areas include such questions as ultra-fast dynamics in condensed matter and modern quantum optics. In addition, there is a joint professorship with the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin on the methods and instrumentation of research with synchrotron radiation.
