A German independent, non-profit research institute for photonics and laser technology offers services in the field of research, development, consulting and training to companies active in the development of manufacturing processes and materials processing. They are willing to work as a subcontractor or within outsourcing agreements. The research institute is also open to work for matching consortiums in H2020 projects.



An independent, German, non-profit research institute active in R&D in photonics and laser technology offers services in the field of research, development, consulting and training to companies.

Their services range from small batch orders to the development and integration of comprehensive processes of laser technologies and photonics dedicated to:

1. Manufacturing processes and materials processing
- laser processing of composite materials
- laser processing of metals (laser joining, laser separation, laser surface treatment)
- additive manufacturing (macro, micro and nano scale)
- laser-based glass processing (surface treatment, separating, joining, forming and consulting, analysis, process development and monitoring)
- laser processing of organic materials

2. Optical components
- coating and thin-film technology
- characterization

3. Analysis techniques
- sample preparation
- analysis methods (imaging processes, others)

4. Laser development
- consulting and development
- characterisation

Beside these services the research institute offers consulting, feasibility studies, laser and occupational safety services within all the mentioned thematic fields.

The institutes' aim is to support the transfer of basic research results to innovative applications for their clients, by providing expertise and their well-equipped facilities.

They are willing to work as a subcontractor or under an outsourcing agreement. This can help companies with shrinking or missing R&D capacities or specifically missing equipment as well as companies willing to enter new production processes, using new materials or developing products beyond their existing portfolio.

The research institute is also open to join suitable consortiums for H2020 proposals as subcontractor or other.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The research institute is very experienced in collaboration with partners: - from several industry sectors, including metal and glass working, automotive, medical, construction and space. - from research projects, with resources from regional, national and European funding programs. - requesting solutions for small batch orders or process development and integration based on thin film and coating technologies and additive manufacturing. -requesting solutions for special laser development. The institute provides well-equipped facilities.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The research institute is looking for industry and/or research partners searching for laser based solutions in the fields of optimizing/ developing: - laser-based manufacturing and material processing - laser-based coating/thin film technologies - new laser and all related consulting processes. The research institute can provide solutions for small orders and the integration of new developed processes in the existing production/ research lines of their clients. Existing partners originate from space, automotive, medical, construction, metal and glass working sectors.
