Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics has a core remit to provide applied research and development which benefits industry. By focussing on applied photonics, an enabling and transformative technology, which underpins a wide range of products and sectors, Fraunhofer CAP is able to support the innovative use of photonics technology through applied R&D and prototyping.
From optical design services, consulting, specialist services to the photonics industry we also assist those companies who do not have any in-house optical expertise and seek sensing, measuring, imaging or communication technology advice and support, through to design and development of demonstrator and prototype systems. Beyond demonstration we support the transfer of our designs to production. Our wide network of industrial partners allows us to ensure that companies have access to the optical processes and products they need.
Unlike other organisations Fraunhofer CAP has in-house expertise in a broad range of laser media and formats. Our researchers will therefore make use of the light source which best meets your needs, that may be readily available off-the-shelf laser or a something more bespoke and sophisticated to meet your specifications for size, cost, weight and lifetime.
