Ended Dec. 2016 WebDefIn Development of an innovative, industry-suited measurement system for in-line inspection of ribbon-like materials.

The system detects defects such as enclosures, delamination and other voids utilizing terahertz radiation.

Ended Mar. 2016 DiaTumor Development of a compact 2-photon microscope with integrated fs fiber laser.

600 µm deep measurement of a mouse brain, taken with Menlo Systems Yb:doped femtosecond fiber laser, dye: YFP - Yellow Fluorescent Protein

Ended Nov. 2015 TERACOMB quantum cascade lasers (QCL) to generate a frequency comb (FC) in the terahertz frequency region
Ended Oct. 2015 SOC2 Towards Neutral-atom Space Optical Clocks
