About the Photonics Cluster

The future is made of light: photonics, the scientific and economic use of light, and closely linked microsystems technology are among the most important key technologies of digitization.

With their diverse competence spectrum, the numerous companies and research institutions make the Berlin-Brandenburg region one of the world's leading industry locations. As an interface between different technologies, they often form the basis for innovative products and services, for example in the fields of medicine or communications technology. In order to further advance these developments, six so-called fields of action have been identified in the cluster.
