Thank you for your visit at LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019!

We hope you enjoyed your visit and the hospitality offered at our stand. The exhibition gave us the opportunity to highlight the wide range of our latest innovations for industrial metrology and quantum technology.

"1995 was the first appearance of the TOPTICA scientific diode laser products. Since then LASER World of PHOTONICS was the perfect and most prominent marketplace to present our capabilities in tunable highly accurate wavelengths to the photonics application industry. The overall tendency to more sophisticated and miniaturized components is an important driving factor for the laser market. Sensing, measuring and modifying with photons will lead us to new dimensions of precision required by new demanding technologies e.g. in microelectronics, consumer communications and automotive."

 Dr. Thomas Weber, Member of Executive Board (COO/CFO)

“Light is an emerging tool for all biophotonics research. Biophotonic markets are rapidly growing and Lasers play an invaluable part in optical instrumentation ranging from microscopy to flow cytometry, medical and pharmaceutical instruments. The steadily growing number of optical technologies in Life Science and Medical applications goes hand in hand with the increasing demand for modern photonic sources. TOPTICA Photonics is proud to be one of the world leading suppliers for demanding biophotonical applications.”

Dr. Thomas Renner, Member of Executive Board (CSO) of TOPTICA

Photons are, apart from being quantum objects, also the central carrier of information in imaging and communication. This session will exemplify the disruptive potential as well as the challenges associated with entangled photon pair sources in the context of newly arising technological applications: Imaging and detection in new spectral ranges as well as principally eavesdrop-proof communication are currently being adopted by both companies and research institutions alike.

Quantum technology 2.0 utilizes the special features of the atomic world for new sensors and ways to process information. Photonics play a key role in that. Not only will the attainable levels of sensitivity and absolute precision be significantly increased, but also novel concepts such as quantum computers will become possible. Supported by strong fundamental research, sweeping breakthroughs are expected within the next few years, incentivizing companies to invest already today. This session provides information on the research strategies in Germany as well as contributions from companies on their cutting-edge developments on quantum sensors and quantum computers.
