A brighter, lighter and healthier world

“From an industrial point of view, our collaboration with B-Phot is interesting, because they have no problem meeting deadlines..."


Photonic components have the potential to be robust, power efficient, lightweight and reliable solution for datacom and sensing in airplanes and space payloads. B-Phot researches for instance the viability of optical interconnects for telecommunication satellite systems and investigates the space readiness of optical glasses, optical sensors and optical transceiver modules. Furthermore, B-Phot is able to design optical systems to comply with harsh specifications using special algorithms for optimisation and tolerancing of optics.
