The International Trade Council (ITC) is a network which works with reputable businesses and external groups to maximise areas of common ground and minimise differences. The council supports policy makers to sponsor the creation of networks, forums and alliances which can provide focus for collaborative work and new growth opportunities.
The Kirchhoff Institute for Physics (KIP) is named after a prominent physicist of the 19th Century: Gustav Robert Kirchhoff, who worked in Heidelberg for 21 years. His well-known lectures on experimental and theoretical physics attracted many students. Kirchhoff's ground-breaking research was extraordinarily diverse, spanning electrical, magnetic, optical, elastic, hydrodynamic and thermal processes. His laws for electrical circuits are well-known. At the time he was in Heidelberg, in conjunction with Robert Wilhelm Bunsen, he discovered spectral analysis and its application to solar radiation. In this way, Kirchhoff laid the foundation for modern astrophysics, as well as formulating the laws of thermal radiation, which played a key role in the discovery of quantum physics. The KIP aims to continue in this tradition of diverse scientific research and education.
Lightwind offers sensors and off-the-shelf or custom solutions for education and industry. Lightwind started in 2001 and through developing their technology and applications has been awarded multiple patents in the United States as well as throughout the world.
Menlo Systems was founded in 2001 by Professor Hänsch, Dr. Ronald Holzwarth, Dr. Michael Mei, and Alex Cable as a spin-off from the renowned Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum Optics around the optical frequency comb technology - a revolutionary and simple technique for measuring the frequency of light. This invention has been called "...the biggest advance in precision electromagnetic measurements since people began to measure laser frequencies in the seventies..."
Our mission is to accelerate the advancement of optical technology for precision measurements and their applications from the table tops of research laboratories to standard use in communication and high technology industries. Our aim is to serve our customers. Our hope is to create a place for highly skilled people in an open environment.

The Photon Science Institute, The University of Manchester
The Photon Science Institute is based at The University of Manchester and the research undertaken at here pushes the boundaries of knowledge and has applications in a number of fields, from cell biology to experimental cosmology.
At the heart of the PSI is the Advanced Laser Lab, located in the Alan Turing building, with large environmentally controlled spaces, housing a wide range of tuneable light sources, from continuous wave to ultrafast, and including a comprehensive infrastructure of advance analytic equipment.
The PSI is an ideal training ground for graduate students wishing to pursue a career in academia, research or industry.
Have you ever seen a Quantum experiment? It’s likely not, and our goal is to show you real experiments that are used to probe the odd nature of this most enigmatic of theories, in an interactive way. Who knows, we may even find some new science on the way!
In a promotion to UK & Ireland customers, Laser Quantum and Thorlabs have announced a linkup offering free Thorlabs products with the purchase of any Laser Quantum laser. Recognising the importance of getting more essential products and capabilities for available budget, 10% of any laser order will be made available to select essential opto-mechanics, optics and even optical tables.
University of Konstanz and the Center for Applied Photonics
The Center for Applied Photonics (CAP) has been established by the State of Baden-Württemberg and the University of Konstanz, Germany.The main focus of CAP is on future photonic applications with research groups from the departments of physics, chemistry, biology, psychology and materials sciences all involved.
The Laser Quantum line is great. Your company makes solid lasers, very well built. The new SMD 6000 controllers allowing remote adjustments of TEC’s etc are a great idea, saves down time and shipping costs to get the laser tuned up. Your red torus laser is a great addition, SLM green is all over but red and blue are harder to find.
