... translating ideas into innovation

Welcome to the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut fuer Hoechstfrequenztechnik!

hybrid-integrated diode laser modules for display technology

We research cutting-edge technologies in the fields of microwave technology and optoelectronics. For customers in industry and science we provide high-frequency devices and circuits for communication and sensor technology as well as high-power diode lasers for materials processing, laser technology, medical technology and high precision metrology.

As a competence center for III/V-compound semiconductors we operate industry-compatible and flexible clean room laboratories with 2"-4" gas phase epitaxy units and a 2"-4" process line.

Balanced 20 W GaN X-band power amplifier

Power amplifiers (PA) are key components of any communication, radar or satellite system. At the FBH, GaN power amplifier MMICs are realized providing both a high output power and a high efficiency. Based on these MMICs, a hybrid balanced PA was realized delivering a maximum output power Pmax of 21.9 W at 10 GHz. The maximum linear amplification is around 24 dB with an overall efficiency of the circuit of 31%.
