GALACTIC poster presentation at the Photonics West 2021 Digital Forum

Join Peter Weßels of LZH at the SPIE Photonics West 2021 Digital Forum (06 – 11 March 2021) for the poster presentation “GALACTIC: High performance alexandrite crystals and coatings for high power space applications”.

Alexandrite is a promising, highly efficient laser material enabling wavelength tunability for applications in spaceborne Earth observation. Hence, the Horizon 2020 project GALACTIC aims at realizing space qualified high quality coated Alexandrite crystals relying on a purely European-based supply chain. The project consortium will push the development of Alexandrite crystals and coatings within the EU up to TRL 6.

At the Photonics West 2021 Digital Forum, project coordinator Peter Weßels shall be presenting the project, its consortium, and strategies to enable non-dependence of Europe in coated Alexandrite laser crystal technology.
