Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut fuer Hoechstfrequenztechnik (FBH)

FBH profileCommunication, energy, health, mobility – innovations in these fields are based primarily on increasingly smaller and ever more powerful electronic and optical components. The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH) explores such modules and systems based on compound semiconductors. FBH develops powerful and high brilliance diode lasers, UV LEDs and hybrid laser systems – from the visible to the ultraviolet spectral range. The application areas are enormously diverse, ranging from medical technology and drinking water purification, precision measurement technology and sensors to optical satellite communication. In the field of microwave technology, FBH provides highly efficient, multifunctional amplifiers and circuits – for example, for energy-efficient mobile communications systems and for components that enhance safe car driving. FBH cooperates closely with industry, ensuring that the research results are translated into practical applications. Two representative examples of successful spin-offs are “eagleyard Photonics” and “JENOPTIK Diode Lab”.
