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:
This product profile describes the features and characteristics of the zoom lens.
The Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ EQUINOX 3000 X-ray Diffractometer for research enables accurate measurements.
KLA’s Filmetrics F40 allows you to transform your benchtop microscope into an instrument to measure thickness and refractive index.
In this interview, AZoOptics talks to Davis Bowling, who provides guidance into extended reality (XR) optical testing and demonstrates how to optimize the testing process.
AZoOptics speaks to Jan Novotný, one of the founding members of Lightigo, about the significance of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) in the elemental analysis field. Discussing Lightigo's rapid technology, Novotný discusses the latest trends in LIBS technology and its many benefits in several applications.
Dr. Stefan Weber
AZoOptics speaks to Phaseform, whose approach to adaptive optics is helping to refine optic technologies across applications like life sciences microscopy and optical inspection.
