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.
