HÜBNER Photonics expands laser research and production facilities
Kassel, Germany: In order to support the growth of HÜBNER Photonics, the youngest division of the HÜBNER Group, a new facility for research, development and manufacturing of laser technology has been established at the HÜBNER headquarters in Kassel. The new facility, the HÜBNER Photonics HUB Kassel, was officially opened on June 28th 2019 in the presence of staff and representatives from the photonics industry.
Worldwide HÜBNER Photonics has four different locations, with laser manufacturing operations at Cobolt in Stockholm and in Kassel, and sales offices in San Jose, California and Southampton, UK. “We are very glad to now have access to expanded and dedicated facilities in Kassel for development and manufacturing of the C-WAVE product line. With this new facility we will be able to meet the growing demand we see for these tunable single-frequency laser sources, in particular for use in Quantum technology research and in production of holographic optical elements for augmented reality applications” commented Dr. Håkan Karlsson, head of HÜBNER Photonics.
The C-WAVE laser technology was developed in a collaboration between HÜBNER and the Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques (IPM) in Freiburg and the unique features of this advanced laser source are now gaining more and more attention on the market. “With the tunable laser light source C-WAVE we have accomplished a truly innovative development in the field of laser technology,” remarks Thorsten Sprenger, head of the Photonics activities at the Kassel location.
