ALPHA-RLH, a French competitiveness cluster for laser and microwave technologies, specializes in partnering with companies and laboratories to set up, evaluate and fund innovative projects.
Based in Bordeaux, Limoges and La Rochelle with missions in China and the US, the cluster is unique in aggregating skills, expertise and talent in photonics and microwave to nurture innovation, while facilitating the further economic development of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.
ALPHA-RLH has spearheaded many ventures, including most recently the SAPHyR project designed to improve the aerospace industry’s understanding of photonics technologies. ALPHA-RLH currently has 253 members who are active in two key strategic fields of activity: Photonics-Lasers (laser sources and procedures, optical components, instrumentation) and Microwaves-Electronics (integrated circuits, radiocommunication systems, radar systems).
These two areas of activity are conducted with the support of digital tools (Digital Solutions & the Factory of the Future Cross-Disciplinary Field of Activity), and promote collaborative innovation to increase member activity in four markets:
The Qualifire™ laser interferometer from Zygo offers a new approach to phase shifting interferometry.
This product profile describes the features and applications of the 2030PV PRO™ microspectrophotometer.
The Monarc Pro T System turns any microscope into an optically-coupled microscope, enabling in-situ discovery for photoactive catalyst studies.
AZoOptics features a new interview with Rebecca Spiecker of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, discussing the development of a new X-ray technique that allows better imaging and analysis of living organisms.
In this interview, AZoOptics speaks with Teledyne Dalsa about the key roles of optics when it comes to Machine Vision Systems.
Dr. Mustafa Kansiz
In this interview conducted at Pittcon 2023 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, we spoke to Mustafa Kansiz, Director of Product Management and Marketing at Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp, about O-PTIR, a new and alternative infrared spectroscopy method.
