In cooperation with


Swiss National Photonics Labs

The Swiss industry has expressed the wish to have a single point of contact at universities, which gets them connected to the best suitable institute to handle a specific request.

Universities have expressed their interest in coordinating their activities, especially with respect to infrastructure. 

We are interested to actively participate in formulating the roadmap for European programs through the European technology Platform "Photonics21"

Thus Swissphotonics has decided to start and support "Swiss National Photonic Labs" (SNPL). The goal of these Virtual Labs is to combine relevant and interested institutes for a specific topic. Each leader of these Swiss National Photonics labs is working together with the respective workgroup in the European technology platform "Photonics21".

At present Swissphotonics supports 8 such labs:

SNAP Swiss National Application Laboratory for Photonic Tools and Manufacturing
SNFL Swiss National Fiber Laboratory 
SSSL Swiss National Laboratory for Solid State Lighting 
SPPL  Swiss Photonic Packaging Laboratory 
SNOP Swiss National Optics Platform 
SPME Swiss Photonics Master Education 
SPVR  Swiss Photo Voltaic Research Platform 
SNOS  Swiss National Laboratory for Optical Sensors
