Review of the Photonics West 2018

SPIE Photonics West 2018:
Thank you for making this year’s exhibition our best visited ever!

The annual opening photonics event brought us three exciting and eventful exhibition days in San Francisco. This year’s highlights of our latest developments and new products attracted more visitors than ever, indicating that quality made in Germany and visionary thinking are values highly cherished by our audience. The Photonics West has once again proved to be a great opportunity to intensify existing and to build new relationships with customers and partners both from science and industry.

ULN comb klein

Our flagship comb FC1500-250-ULN with an unprecedented 10-18 frequency accuracy throughout its entire spectral range is the first clockwork that guarantees highest precision standards for today’s and future most demanding applications, including optical clocks. That is why we still are the number one world leader in frequency comb technology.


Femtosecond fiber lasers for OEM integration:

Our recent release, the YLMO-930 offers new opportunities in life sciences and microscopy. A compact footprint and highest reliability make it a perfect choice for 24/7 operation, a key feature for the connection to Industry 4.0. YLMO 930 klein


Femtosecond fiber lasers for scientific applications:

Laser scientific klein The outstanding performance of our figure 9® laser technology makes the C-Fiber an ideal source for precision synchronization, allowing our fully integrated TDS Timing Distribution System coming from one single source to be unique on the market.


Terahertz solutions:

A true highlight of the booth has been the do-it-yourself live setup of the TERA K15 with online thickness measurement of coatings. Our new generation of THz-TDS systems provides >5 THz spectral bandwidth and >90 dB dynamic range. Combined with highest flexibility in system configuration and a large variety of optional features such as synchronization or multichannel output our systems are the first choice for tailored solutions in science and industry.
