H2020-SME Innovation Instrument Gives Grant for Innovative Diode Laser System

H2020-SME Innovation Instrument Gives Grant for Innovative Diode Laser System


Innovayt worked together with the Danish company Norlase on a Horizon 2020 proposal that was approved for funding.  The company is currently preparing the Grant Agreement to be signed with the EU under the SME Innovation Instrument – phase 1.

The concept behind the CoDiS project is to manufacture a new compact, high-power, frequency-converted diode laser system. Visible lasers are of interest to a wide variety of industries, including life science, lighting, medical diagnostics, laser pumping, and scientific applications. Existing laser technologies do not offer the combination of intrinsic stability, low noise, high beam quality, high power, and wavelength tuneability.  Norlase is a spin-out company from DTU, Denmark set up to develop and commercialize a new class of visible lasers, tapered diode doubled lasers (TDDL), based on award-winning technology. TDDL is a unique, simple platform technology, especially attractive inhigh-volume applications. The overall objective of Norlase is to manufacture a new class of compact, reliable, low-noise visible lasers in the 1-20 W output power range providing designers of OEM equipment unique opportunities in terms of performance and cost effectiveness.

Comments from CEO Peter M. W. Skovgaard on the work performed by Innovayt: “The EU application process has reached a complexity where we were struggling to allocate the resources needed. Innovayt played a crucial part in this process, not only in crystallizing our thoughts and plans, but also in guiding us through the process itself. ”
