18 companies and three research institutions have teamed up in the Inno­va­tive Regio­nal Growth Core ›Tailo­red Opti­cal Fibers‹ [TOF] to deve­lop and mar­ket tailo­red opti­cal fibers for future app­li­ca­ti­ons. 

Vision & Goals

SMEs and lar­ger com­pa­nies will coope­rate with rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons in order to deve­lop a joint tech­no­logy plat­form for tailo­red fibers in new pho­to­nic app­li­ca­ti­ons. The invol­ved enter­pri­ses intend to mar­ket the new fibers world­wide sub­se­quent to the pro­ject. Poten­tial fields of app­li­ca­tion are: sophisti­ca­ted fiber optic metro­logy in indus­try and medi­cine, novel light sources for laser and mate­rial pro­ces­sing, or light emit­ting tex­ti­les.

Bes­i­des innovative high-tech products, such as high tem­pe­ra­ture fibers for resource explo­ra­tion, fiber sen­sors for key­hole sur­gery, or smart sur­faces for vehi­cle inte­ri­ors, the coope­ra­tion will deve­lop an effi­ci­ent net­work, which will pro­s­pec­tively deli­ver tailo­red solu­ti­ons for indi­vi­dual custo­mer requi­re­ments in other mar­ket seg­ments. In the long run, this approach will help to increase the com­pa­nies’ tur­no­ver and create new jobs in the region.
