Dr-Ing Thomas Theeg, a scientist at Laser Zentrum Hannover, has founded a spin-off company of the research institute which will specialize in custom glass fiber components, fiber modules and manufacturing systems for these components.

FiberBridge Photonics will be working on applications in research, production, telecommunications and medical technology with individualized products. Before its founding, the FiberBridge Photonics team had been working in the laser development department for ten years, and has experiences in the field of glass fiber components and fiber-based laser systems. The glass fiber components and fiber modules are manufactured semi-automated using CO2 laser radiation.
