Research and Development
We realize research and development services in the following areas:
» optical spectroscopy/ plasma diagnostics

» sensor for measuring physical quantities

» remote measurement for meteorological tasks

» capture of measured quantities with drones (for example spectral indidzes, thermal imaging,    photogrammetric measurements)

» acousto-optic monochromators / video spectroscopy

We also supply you with the most modern IT technology for optimal storage and processing of your data. Here we use products from leading manufacturers.

Running networks and projects


The manufacture of devices for green energy production and storage in Europe is a strategic, fast-growing sector which is essential in ensuring that the EU meets its energy and climate targets for 2030. A major limitation to this is that 95% of the key raw materials for green energy devices are currently imported from outside the EU. Geologically, lithium-caesium-tantalum (LCT) and niobium-yttrium-fluorine (NYF) pegmatites are relatively common in Europe, enriched in many CRM needed for energy technologies but difficult to explore because most are buried, small and clustered.

The GREENPEG – “New Exploration Tools for European Pegmatite Green-Tech Resources” approach will develop and test a set of high-level exploration technologies and algorithms to be integrated and upscaled into flexible, ready-to-use (TRL 7) toolsets for the identification of buried pegmatite ores. Validation of the new approach will be ensured from industry-led trials at locations in Austria, Ireland and Norway, while application studies will also be done in Finland, Portugal and Spain. The data acquired will enhance European databases, e.g. adding new petrophysical properties for pegmatite ores, making the toolsets also important for geological surveys and increasing the competitiveness of EU companies.

The project is funded by the European Commission under Grant Agreement No. 869274.

GREENER – "Single photon source and detector based on novel materials for the detection of endocrine disruptors"

The environmental monitoring of potentially hazardous substances such as chemicals or pharmaceuticals is of great societal interest, especially in aquaponics or fisheries, since excessive supply of hormones can lead to reproductive disorders. Nevertheless, a comprehensive measurement z. B. in rivers, sewage and sewage treatment plants is a major challenge and is therefore only carried out in suspicious cases. The necessary measuring technology for the detection of such substances in concentrations of ng/L is only available in laboratories so far. Therefore, there is a great need for easy-to-use measurement technology to detect potential pollutants in the atmosphere, in water, etc.

With the GREENER project, a non-dispersive technology of a spectrometer as a nano-(opto-) electronic system with an electrically pumped single-photon source and a highly efficient single-photon detector is being developed and made available for the first time.
