14 Cluster Report Optics and Photonics – Laser Technology High-power laser diode for extreme, pulsed applications © eagleyard Photonics GmbH Adlershof has seen many companies turn research findings into successful business ideas. One example is eagleyard Photonics GmbH, which has been developing, manufacturing, and selling high-performance laser diodes for high-end applications worldwide for 15 years. The latest products in the range are new rugged high-performance diodes with peak powers of up to 90 W for pulsed applications, even under extreme temperature conditions and a high brilliance single-mode laser diode with 800 mW output power and integrated beam forming. Diode laser bars made by Jenoptik Diode Lab GmbH © Jenoptik AG/Heiner Mueller-Elsner Lumics GmbH has also specialised in diodes, mastering all steps in the process from epitaxy to assembly to produce complete laser diode modules. Founded at Stuttgart’s Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Lumics is now part of the Scansonic Group and a leading manufacturer of high-power diode lasers and laser diodes for medical, industrial, and scientific applications. 14-pin butterfly DFB laser (left: 795 nm, right: 1,064 nm) © eagleyard Photonics GmbH Jenoptik AG is an important player in the industry in Berlin. As a result of close cooperation between Jenoptik and the FBH the Jenoptik Diode Lab GmbH was founded in 2002. Today it manufactures optoelectronic semiconductor components in Berlin, which Jenoptik later uses in the development and production of high-power diode lasers. Thereby, Jenoptik offers products and applications for laser material processing along the entire value chain, from individual components to complex laser plants. They also manufacture innovative solidstate lasers such as disk and fibre lasers.

Cluster Report Optics and Photonics – Laser Technology 15 Picoquant GmbH works with diode lasers that can deliver ultrashort pulses. The pulse times typically lie in the picosecond range, with repetition rates in the megahertz range. The company also offers fluorescence spectrometers and microscopes. The areas of application range from materials and life sciences to quantum technologies. Laser Diode Controller LDC2000 © Laser Electronics LE GmbH Laser Electronics LE GmbH also develops and manufactures high-performance laser diode systems. The company specialises in control and cooling technology and offers laser diode controllers, TEC drivers, and laser coolers for material processing and other industrial and medical applications. PhotonTec Berlin GmbH specialises in complete modules including optics and fibres for the transmission of laser light. In addition, PhotonTec also offers diode-pumped solid state lasers. The product spectrum ranges from near infrared to ultraviolet and from milliwatts to hundreds of watts of laser power. A collection of compact PicoQuant laser heads © PicoQuant GmbH Brilliance FAB Berlin GmbH was founded in May 2013 as the result of a cooperation between the FBH and the Chinese company Sino Nitride Semiconductor Co., Ltd (SNS). BFB’s activities focus on exploiting the semiconductor laser technology developed at FBH for industrial use. At the centre of the development work are lasers for use in automotive lighting, quantum sensors, and Raman spectroscopy. Specialised in short pulses Some companies have concentrated on lasers with short pulses. For example, LTB Lasertechnik Berlin GmbH, which offers short-pulse lasers in the entire spectral range, high-resolution spectrometers, and laser-based measurement technology. The company offers both nitrogen and dye lasers. Advanced Laser Diode Systems A.L.S. GmbH, a subsidiary of Swiss laser technology firm onefive or rather NKT Photonics A/S, focuses on short-pulse lasers. The company is a leading manufacturer of photodetectors and turnkey ultrashort-pulse laser systems with pulse lengths down to the femtosecond range. The Teltow-based company Adlares GmbH offers a detection module that can check gas lines for leaks from the air. Polytec GmbH maintains a sales and consulting office in Berlin-Adlershof for spectroscopic measuring systems and fibre lasers, optical amplifiers, and component test systems. The Potsdam-based F&K Physiktechnik GmbH offers ultrasonic technology for chip production as well as lasers for the alignment of machines and workpieces and optoelectronic measuring systems.
