The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH), based in Berlin, Germany, is to present its latest developments and advances in diode lasers and UV LEDs at Photonics West 2020, in San Francisco, between February 4th-6th.
At the German Pavilion, the institute will be showcasing its full range of capabilities, from design through chips to modules and prototype systems. BeamXpert, another FBH spin-off, will demonstrate its software, enabling real-time simulation of laser radiation in optical systems.
The FBH is also well represented at the accompanying conferences with 20 scientific contributions. In addition to its established diode-laser-based light sources, the FBH exhibits at the booth a terahertz camera sensor that operates in a broad frequency range between 500 - 2500 GHz.
It offers high sensitivity of NEP ≤ 50 pW/Hz0.5 along with a fast response time. Therefore it is ideally suited for imaging systems used for quality control in industrial applications. It can also be integrated into medical equipment, e.g., for diabetes diagnostics and spectroscopy.
