Gitterwerk GmbH, a young company from Jena, Germany, seeks to increase the efficiency of ultrashort pulse (USP) lasers. Based on its unique manufacturing technology, highly efficient diffraction gratings can be manufactured individually and at volume.

The founder Dr. Lorenz Stürzebecher says: “After five years of research it is a good feeling to found a high-tech company, which directly delivers value to our customers. Today’s laser market, especially the ultrashort pulse laser market, is fast growing, dynamic and competitive. You need to be fast and innovative in optimizing your systems. An easy step is to implement a high-quality diffraction grating in your laser system.”

Co-founder Dr. Frank Fuchs adds: “The grating design and quality have a dramatic impact on the system performance. A high-performance grating, which is individually designed for the application can increase your laser efficiency up to twenty percent.”

Gitterwerk is based in Jena, a city with a long-standing tradition in optics and photonics. Operating its own cleanroom facilities, the start-up covers the full chain of nanostructure-production in-house.

Currently there is no technology managing the delicate balance between performance and availability for one of the defining components of high performance USP lasers – diffraction gratings. To the company’s own information, Gitterwerk is the first company with the ability to scale the output of these fundamental components, while maintaining exceptional quality and performance.
