About us

The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut gGmbH (FBH) is an application-oriented research institute in the fields of high-frequency electronics, photonics, and quantum physics. It researches electronic and optical components, modules and systems based on compound semiconductors. In the field of photonics, FBH develops light sources from the near-infrared to the ultra-violet spectral range: high-power diode lasers with excellent beam quality, UV light sources, and hybrid laser modules. Applications range from medical technology, high-precision metrology and sensors to optical communications in space and integrated quantum technology.

The FBH is a center of competence for III-V compound semiconductors covering the full range of capabilities, from design through fabrication to device characterization. The institute offers its international customer base tailored solutions and know-how as a one-stop agency – from design to ready-to-use modules and prototypes.
