Ferdinand Braun Institute Wins Transfer Prize

EuroPhotonics
Jun 2012
The Berlin-based Ferdinand Braun Institute, which works closely with Jenoptik Diode Lab GmbH of Berlin-Adlershof, has been awarded the €50,000 (about $66,400) Transfer Prize 2012 for high-power diode lasers for materials processing. The team, led by physicist Dr. Götz Erbert, received the prize at the Laser Optics Berlin trade fair in March. The award is underwritten by friends of the Technology Foundation Berlin. Scientists at the institute developed diode lasers based on designs with less energy loss than usual and with no reduction in beam quality.


GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
