Menlo Systems GmbH is a spin-off from the renowned Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum Optics. Professor T.W. Hänsch, director of the institute, and his co-workers have pioneered a revolutionary and simple technique for measuring the frequency of light: the Optical Frequency Synthesizer. This invention has been called "...the biggest advance in precision electromagnetic measurements since people began to measure laser frequencies in the seventies..."
The Optical Frequency Synthesizer FC8004 enables the user to measure optical frequencies with the highest accuracy with a table top instrument. With its base technology numerous world records in precision measurements have been achieved, e.g. in the determination of the Rydberg constant.

We have completed the product spectrum with our femtosecond fiber lasers C-Fiber and M-Fiber. The state-of-the art instruments focus on ease-of-use without sacrificing performance. Various models for applications like medical diagnostics, Terahertz spectroscopy, seeding of amplifiers and test & measurement applications are available.
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.
The Filmetrics F20 benchtop film thickness measurement tool is a general purpose instrument for measuring thickness and refractive index.
Dynamic characterization of MEMs devices is achieved by Micro System Analyzer MSA-650 IRIS.

AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
