Expertise in laser technology

Monocrom Projects;

While production is the engine of Monocrom, R&D is the very core of the business. We posess broad scientific and technical expertise in laser physics, semiconductor, optical fiber technology and laser electronics. Our mission is the design and development of laser diode devices with high added value, innovative and competitive diode-based lasers and diode-pumped solid state lasers (DPSSL).

Our experience in the laser field has demonstrated the applicability of new concepts in laser physics, like our patented technology for non-soldered mounting of laser bars, Clamping™

Our solid state Q-Switched green laser, capable of providing microseconds laser pulses has been considered one of the most important developments in eye surgery from the last years.

Monocrom has a wide experience and good success rate participating in research projects both as partner and as leader. These projects are sponsored by the European Union and some Spanish organisms as well, often in cooperation with other academic research centres and institutions. Our latest challenge in the outer space has been the developpment of an ultra lightweight and resistant green laser for the ESA ExoMars space mission to MARS in 2020.
