PHYLAX: Personal hybrid laser-based explosive detection

The scientists of the Institute of Technical Physics in Lampoldshausen focus on laser spectroscopy. The photo shows the laser-based detection system PHYLAX in operation.

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) Institute of Technical Physics develops laser systems for applications in aerospace, as well as in the areas of security and defence. At the Institute sites in Stuttgart and Lampoldshausen, scientists, engineers and technicians work on interdisciplinary issues in the key areas - Detection and Removal of Space Debris - laser-based remote detection of harmful and hazardous substances - Long Range Laser Effectors - Laser propulsion for space travel. With many years of experience in the development and evaluation of high-power laser systems and active optical system technologies, research into beam propagation over long distances and laser-matter interaction, the Institute of Technical Physics is a centre of excellence for civilian and defence security research.
