    Farming 4.0 and the photonics industry

    It is rare that a politician is cited in a laser magazine. But last week, Chancellor Angela Merkel spoke about digital technologies for farming at the International Green Week, here in Berlin. Referring to precision farming, she said, "this technology enables us to look at each and every plant and to enter information on specific plants, thus reducing the need for fertilizers and making forecasts possible.

    Ultra-narrow linewidth diode laser for LISA

    The LISA satellite mission aims to detect and characterize gravitational waves. To achieve this, three laser interferometers will be used that require suitable metrology lasers. The FBH has developed a 1064 nm diode laser with resonant optical feedback to be used as seed laser, aiming to replace Nd:YAG NPRO lasers used so far.


Talents & Skilled Personnel

Recruiting and securing skilled personnel plays a vital role at the institute - FBH coordinates projects related to:

  • vocational orientation
  • apprenticeship
  • advanced vocational training

The FBH is also the central contact for the respective issues in the Photonics Cluster.
