We produce and supply highly-efficient and cost-effective laser frequency conversion units (FCU) tailored for traditional and emerging photonics markets. Our products will enable boosting to the next level a broad range of laser applications: from bio-tech to environmental monitoring, material processing, aerospace and defense, secure key distribution, and quantum communications systems. Our proprietary production process has no-counterpart in the world and is based on unique know-how, obtained from years of research in the field of lasers and photonics at KTH. We have assessed the quality and validity of our products through extensive collaboration and sales-demand from international partners, both in industry and academia.
