The start-up company VISOLAS GmbH has been founded out of U. Lemmer’s and T. Mappes’ groups in spring 2011.
VISOLAS aims at commercializing organic semiconductor lasers for biophotonic applications.
The company is a specialist for the development and production of organic laser light sources with freely adjustable wavelengths. Based on KIT research, the founders of VISOLAS developed a tunable light source for spectroscopy and integrated the advantages of the dye lasers into a compact device. The compact device is perfect for daily usage in laboratories as it is portable and therefore designed for mobile use.
In June 2011, VISOLAS obtained the prestigeous Cyberone Hightech Award for the Best Research Commercialization of 2011.
