Mario Lehwald has awarded the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut for its "outstanding commitment to vocational training" during a visit of the Federal Employment Agency to the institute. The meeting was held at the beginning of August 2021 jointly with ANH Berlin, the Network for Vocational and Advanced Training in High Technology based at the institute.
The association of the same name thereby acknowledges FBH's ongoing commitment to equal opportunity.
In October 2021, the renowned International Semiconductor Laser Conference (ISLC) will be held in Germany – for the first time in nineteen years and in person. Interested participants can register now – early bird registration until July 30.
The publication "783 nm wavelength stabilized DBR tapered diode lasers with a 7 W output power" has been selected as Editor's Pick by the Applied Optics Editorial Office - a recognition for articles with excellent scientific quality.
The Berlin-based Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) recently put a sophisticated ion implanter system from High Voltage Engineering Europa B.V. into operation.
The 27th International Semiconductor Laser Conference (ISLC) will be held from October 10-14, 2021. The submission deadline for conference contributions has been extended. Contributions can now be submitted as a two-page abstract until May 21, 2021.
For the second time, ICULTA – the 'International Conference on UV LED Technologies & Applications’ – presented a forum for the UV LED community to exchange ideas and results on cutting-edge topics.
In April, IOP Publishing awarded FBH scientist Carsten Netzel an Outstanding Reviewer Award 2020 for the Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics
Two researchers from the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut have recently taken strategic positions leading IEEE Photonics Society's globalization efforts. From now until 2023, Paul Crump will be the organization’s Globalization Chair. Neysha Lobo Ploch is getting involved as IEEE SIGHT representative.
The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) presents current research results at the virtual ICULTA 2021. In particular, the reliability of UVB and UVC LEDs has been significantly improved – an important step towards their commercial use.
ICULTA 2021 is getting closer – the forum for state-of-the art know-how and innovations in UV LED technologies and their multiple applications. From April 19 to 20, 2021, experts from all over the world will present and discuss latest results in UV LED development, irradiation systems based on UV LEDs as well as their use in industry and research.
Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, SweGaN AB, and University of Bristol are partnering in the European Space Agency funded Kassiopeia project. The teams join forces to develop high-performance Ka-band GaN MMICs.
The award is presented to a team of eleven authors from Germany, Poland and Lithuania - including five scientists from the Ferdinand-Braun-Institut.
Three years after the first successful ICULTA conference, the follow-up event will be held from April 19 to 20, 2021. Talks by internationally recognized speakers have already been confirmed. To participate with oral or poster/slide presentations, a one-page abstract should be submitted by February 15, 2021.
The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) will present its research results targeting energy-efficient amplifier concepts as well as terahertz (THz) components and systems for broadband communication and imaging at the virtual "European Microwave Week" (EuMW). In addition to its conference contributions, FBH exhibits from January 12-14, 2021 at the joint booth of the "Research Fab Microelectronics Germany" (FMD) in exhibition hall 3 – with FBH scientists available for a virtual exchange.
The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut starts the year 2021 as an independent gGmbH and is no longer part of the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V. In the new corporate form, we believe that we have the opportunity to create the optimal environment for our application-oriented research. As a fast-growing institute, we need flexible structures that allow us to respond quickly and proactively to new requirements.
