Over the last years, TOPTICA Photonics has evolved to one of the leading laser photonics companies in Europe. Based near Munich, Germany, we develop and manufacture high-end lasers and laser systems for scientific and industrial applications in biophotonics, quantum optics and test & measurement. TOPTICA has its home in the three following technology fields: diode and fiber lasers as well as Terahertz system design. Among our customers are not only high-tech companies in the life sciences, the semiconductor industry or quality assurance but also nearly a dozen Nobel Laureates.
About 180 highly skilled employees transfer today’s research technology into new products for industrial applications. Latest research and customer needs are merging in TOPTICA products in order to meet the requirements for leading-edge solutions. Scientific and OEM customers alike appreciate the sophisticated performance of our systems as well as long lifetime, high reliability and stability. A subsidiary in Rochester, NY, USA and a worldwide distribution network ensure best service and short responsetimes for our international customers.
On April 26th, the impressive Four-Laser Guide Star Facility (4LGSF) was fully operational for the first time at the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the Paranal Observatory in Chile.
In February 2016 the European commission approved funding for the new project PIX4life as part of the EU’s “Photonics21” program. TOPTICA is proud to support this unique program which pledges € 8.5 million to a consortium of several partners from academia and industry.
In order to support TOPTICA’s continuous growth, they have added a new OEM Senior Business Development Manager, Dr. Holger Stupp. His Ph. D. is in Physics, specifically in the field of time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy under laser irradiation.
New products to be shown at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from February 13th – 18th include ultra-stable diode lasers and powerful femtosecond fiber lasers, as well as frequency combs and terahertz systems.
The FemtoFiber ultra NIR is a cost-effective, turnkey laser system that provides femtosecond laser pulses of more than 500 mW average power and an excellent beam quality.
