    Development of a novel membrane laser module for spectral measurement methods

    August 12, 2020

    The Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Solid State Physics IAF has partnered up with the start-up “Twenty-One Semiconductors” (21s) from Stuttgart to bring their unique laser concept from lab to practice. Having become a member of the high-tech incubator “FMD-Space” – initiated by the Research Fab Microelectronics Germany (FMD) – 21s has gained access to Europe’s largest machine park in the field of micro- and nanoelectronics. As a part of the FMD, Fraunhofer IAF is supporting the young company with its expertise in the field of semiconductor laser technologies. They are working together to develop a novel, efficient and compact membrane laser module.

    From June 23 to 25, we would have presented our sensor technology innovations for the first time at the "Sensor + Test" in Nuremberg – the leading forum for sensors, measuring and testing technologies worldwide. Despite the cancellation of the "Sensor + Test" for the year 2020, the new developments of the FMD remain relevant. We would therefore like to invite you to get an overview of our planned topics, exhibits and systems on the following websites.
