... 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.

Laser sources for atom interferometry in space

Outer space offers optimum conditions for quantum optical experiments, since zero gravity is ideally suited to meet the stringent requirements on measurement accuracy and precision. However, until now, one of the main technological limitations was the lack of a space-qualified technology for the lasers. At the FBH, a compact and very robust platform based on GaAs diode lasers has been developed closing this technology gap.

Digital Doherty Tx for Future SDR Mobile Infrastructures

Digital power amplifier (PA) concepts are highly attractive, especially when it comes to optimizing wireless infrastructure. Processing all signals digitally up to the final stage would simplify the system set-up, reducing both space requirements and energy consumption. Recently, NEC (Japan) and FBH proposed and verified a new digital transmitter architecture. For the first time, the Doherty concept was proven for digital signals, successfully transferring it to the "digital world".
