An independent jury will reward the best picture with the TOPTICA Photo Contest Prize, a pair of Sony Wireless Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones:
  • Simply take a photo of you and/or your lab with your TOPTICA lasers
  • Upload the photo on our website or use your Instagram account
  • The best picture will be chosen at the end of the competition
This is what you can win!

An independent jury will reward the best picture with the TOPTICA Photo Contest Prize. Just like TA pro, it is low noise and good at amplification: a pair of Sony Wireless Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones worth approximately EUR 370. We will also raffle off five TOPTICA goody-bags among all participants.

Deadline March 31, 2021

Upload your picture to this page by March 31, 2021. The senders assure that their pictures are not burdened with rights of third parties and depicted persons agree with the publication. Claims of third parties will be fulfilled by the sender. The sender agrees that the images will be published on the online gallery and on social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) as part of the TOPTICA "amplified Photo Contest".

Agreement to Rules

There’s no rights-grabbing – all participants retain full and exclusive rights to their work. By participating, the Contestant (“You”) agrees to be fully unconditionally bound by these rules, and You represent and warrant that You meet the eligibility requirements. In addition, You agree to accept the decisions of TOPTICA Photonics AG as final and binding as it relates to the content of this campaign. You can see all the details on how to participate at the bottom of the page.

High-power diode lasers and amplifiers

For a variety of applications the output power of single-mode laser diodes is not sufficient. TOPTICA offers tapered amplifiers in Master Oscillator Power Amplifier (MOPA) configuration as well as stand-alone amplifier systems. Tapered amplifiers reach high powers up to 4 W with excellent beam quality and without compromising the favorable spectral qualities of their master lasers. MOPA systems feature TOPTICAs low noise and narrow linewidth master lasers and offer convenient and safe operation with DLC pro.

TA pro and BoosTA pro are table-top MOPA and amplifier systems. MTA pro is TOPTICAs flexible rack mounted solution that can feature up to two complete MOPA systems, but also amplifiers or DL pro or DFB pro lasers in one drawer.
