We are very grateful to the following sponsors whose generosity has made this conference possible.

Silver sponsors:

  • TOPTICA's lasers are essential for a big variety of demanding applications in quantum optics, spectroscopy, biophotonics, microscopy, test & measurement, as well as materials inspection. The lasers provide the widest wavelength coverage: 190 nm - 0.1 THz (corresponding to 3 mm). The unique wavelength range is based on the major product categories – diode lasers, ultrafast fiber lasers, THz systems and frequency combs. Industrial customers, scientists and over a dozen Nobel laureates all acknowledge the world-class exceptional specifications of TOPTICA’s lasers, as well as their reliability and longevity.

  • Amplitude, founded in 2001, is a leading company in the design, manufacture and commercialisation of diode-pumped ultrafast lasers for scientific, medical and industrial applications. Having pioneered many new technologies and products, Amplitude offers an extensive portfolio including ultrafast diode-pumped lasers, industrial fibre femtosecond lasers, high-intensity Ti-Sapphire and high energy advanced nanosecond lasers. Headquartered in Bordeaux, France, Amplitude is proud to boast over 25,000 units installed globally, 400+ employees, 5,000 m2 of production area, 9 facilities around the world and a global service team.
