The Franco-German satellite MERLIN is due to be launched into space in 2025 to measure the methane concentration in the Earth’s atmosphere – a milestone in climate research. Important components of the LiDAR measurement system come from the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut in Berlin, which has now delivered the required laser diode benches to the project partner.
For disinfection purposes, the compact system can be equipped with UV LEDs to elim-inate germs on critical surfaces such as mobile phones. It can also be assembled with LEDs providing the optimum emission spectrum for polymer curing and medical treatments – even multiple wavelengths are possible.
With the delivery of Keysight Technologies’ custom-designed wideband microwave downconverters, all key components for the novel 5G-MIMO system are now in place at Ferdinand-Braun-Institut.
A novel LED irradiation system developed by the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut aims to kill microorganisms with ultra-short wave UV light – without side effects. Prototype handed over to the Charité for initial testing.
At the end of 2019, the Cold Atom Laboratory (CAL) team at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), USA, received the "NASA Group Achievement Award". This award also honors the achievements of Dr. Markus Krutzik as a postdoctoral researcher at JPL.
UVphotonics will present novel UV LED developments with emission wavelengths from 330 nm to as low as 230 nm at Photonics West 2020. The versatile light sources are configurable to various application requirements.
FBH exhibits novel diode lasers and modules at Photonics West 2020. Applications include materials processing, LiDAR, medicine, and (Raman) spectroscopy. Progress in UV LEDs is presented jointly with the spin-off UVphotonics.
