Abacus Laser was founded 2014 by Dr. Christoph Bollig.
In the year 2015, the company moved into rooms of the Götec (technology and foundation center of Göttingen) and found an ideal environment for cooperations with the nearby HAWK (University of Applied Sciences and Arts), the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST and many innovative companies in the same building.
The vision of the company is to develop lidar modules with a narrow bandwidth reference laser, high-power pulsed (Q-switched) laser and optical detection and offer these modules as products. The current focus is on the development of a lidar module based on fiber optics. For more information about the recent development of the lidar module please see here.
Besides this own development, Abacus Laser offers customer-specific special solutions and consulting in the areas of laser and optical remote sensing, as well as assistance with repair, maintenance, and modification of existing lasers and lidar systems.
The company can draw upon 20 years of experience in laser development, lidar and coherent detection and has worldwide unique competences in single frequency pulsed laser and laser in the eye-safe wavelength range.
Abacus Laser is well connected with national and international institutes. Examples of successful projects are projects with the DLR (national aeronautics and space research centre of the Federal Republic of Germany) and the Windlidar WiLi of the Leibnitz Institute for Tropospheric Research.
