DTU Fotonik's Diode Lasers and LED Systems group carries out research, development and education within new diode laser systems and diode lighting systems. The aim is to increase the competence of Danish companies to compete within the area of high technological laser systems and energy saving diode lighting systems, and to educate new researchers in these fields.
New diode laser systems
The research area includes research, development and education in diode laser systems for both medical and industrial purposes. We carry out fundamental studies as well as applied research where new industrial lasers are constructed. We are currently developing new and improved diode laser systems for medical applications, materials processing, biotechnology and optical sensing.
Solid state lighting (SSL) is rapidly emerging as the most energy efficient alternative to traditional light sources. High energy efficiency, robustness and longevity are some of the most important advantages of Light Emitting Diodes (LED). DTU Fotonik’s LED Systems group conducts research, development and education within LED technology, which is important for the successful implementation of this new lighting technology in a wide range of applications including general illumination.
