Ultrashort pulse lasers with a duration of approx. 250 fs have become indispensable tools in research and industry. We are performing a technology push by upgrading industrial-grade lasers to deliver pulses as short as 10 fs. This brings us to our twofold mission. Firstly, we are going to provide scientists with extremely reliable ultrashort pulse lasers to advance the frontier research in ultrafast spectroscopy, microscopy and tumor detection. Secondly, we aim to satisfy the growing industrial demand in high-end material processing applications for stable and reliable ultrafast lasers with ever shorter pulse durations.

Our products are add-on modules which can be easily adapted to nearly all different types of existing laser systems. This way we are not only providing the added value to a customer but also bringing sustainability to the ultrafast laser market. The n2-Photonics team has over 17 years of cumulative experience with this technology. Our technology features unprecedented stability, reliability and life time.


The n2-Photonics team convinced the jury of the EXIST research transfer funding program of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (volume 800,000 €) with its innovative technology and the associated business plan. This program is aimed at outstanding, high-tech, research-based start-up projects. Currently we are hosted by a young and dynamic Chair of Laser Technology and Spectroscopy (Prof. Dr. Pronin), an excellent research facility providing all necessary infrastructure and support.
