We expand the capabilities of your laser light - for research as well as for industrial application. As a highly traditional system supplier of technical industrial products HÜBNER is developing innovative technology to meet demands of the global market.

In alliance with the Fraunhofer Institute for Physical Measurement Techniques IPM we also evolve the field of photonics. Thus we are able to build intelligent and pathbreaking products which will let you experience true added values − such as C-WAVE.

Visible, widely tunable, continuous-wave - for a long time this was equivalent to the handling of toxic dyes, to change laser media or resonator mirrors or the restriction to narrow tuning ranges. HÜBNER has teamed up with Fraunhofer IPM to develop a widely tunable, easy-to-operate single source for applications such as spectroscopy, quantum optics and photochemistry.

Here we present C-WAVE, a new type of light source: The principle of continuous-wave (cw) optical parametric oscillators is combined with intra-cavity frequency doubling to generate coherent light across the whole visible range. 

While this wide tunability was our primary concern for the first generation of C-WAVE, it is easily adapted to the needs of your experiment: for an emission range shifted towards UV or NIR, for narrow linewidth, for higher power, for a fast switching between particular wavelengths.
C-WAVE by HÜBNER Photonics - the first cw source allowing you to tune from blue to red without any change of materials or components.

Applications for C-WAVE:

  • Atomic physics
  • Quantum optics
  • Metrology
  • Spectroscopy
  • Microscopy
  • Biophotonics
  • Photochemistry
  • Characterization of optical components, ...

 Applications for C-FLEX

  • Fluorescence microscopy
  • Flow cytometry
  • Optogenetics
  • Photochemistry

Applications for Cobolt Lasers

  • Raman Spectroscopy
  • Fluorescence Microscopy
  • Gas sensing
  • Holography
  • Optical tweezers
C-WAVE is the tunable laser light source for continuous-wave (cw) emission in the visible and near-infrared wavelength range for demanding applications as in atomic physics or quantum optics.
As a highly-flexible and extremely compact laser combiner, C-FLEX lets you combine up to 6 wavelengths out of more than 30 wavelengths available.
