(PresseBox) ( Gräfelfing, )
On September 9th 2016, TOPTICA’s guide star laser SodiumStar 20/2 was rewarded with the third price of the highly prestigious Laser Research Innovation Award presented by the Berthold Leibinger Stiftung. The "Guide Star Alliance", consisting of TOPTICA Photonics AG (Germany), MPB Communications Inc. (Canada) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), developed a novel high power laser system over a period of more than seven years serving as Guide Star for the Very Large Telescope (VLT) and other Large and Extremely Large Telescopes (ELT). This technology is a very long sought for key component for the construction of modern, earth-based telescopes and it has created already a large impact in the performance, reliability and maintenance of such high-tech devices.
