Invited talk "Opportunities and challenges of a Swiss SME in European research projects" during the official Launch of the new EU-program Horizon 2020


The FET-Open project COSIT was successfully completed. The final project review was held on the 28th of January 2014 in Zurich. Public Summary

Terahertz Generators and Detectors:
Electro-Optic OH1 Crystals

OH1: (2-(3-(4-Hydroxystyryl)-5,5-dimethylcyclohex-2-enylidene)malononitrile)

High quality OH1 crystals Organic crystals polished, coated and mounted for optical applications
Example of an as-grown OH1 crystal and organic crystals polished, coated and mounted for optical applications. OH1 and other high-quality organic crystals are produced and optically prepared in the facilities of Rainbow Photonics in Switzerland.
