Multiphoton Optics founders receive COWIN Entrepreneurship Award for Outstanding Contribution to Innovation in ICT Hardware and Smart Systems

Multiphoton Optics GmbH is pleased to announce that its founders Markus Riester and Ruth Houbertz have received the COWIN Entrepreneurship Award for Outstanding Contribution to innovation in ICT Hardware and Smart Systems. In the award ceremony at the European Parliament, the far reaching disruptive nature of the technology platform was highlighted. “The process addresses one of the major bottlenecks in photonic packaging and allows creating a high volume manufacturing process chain for packaging of photonic components like VCSELs, Silicon Photonic chips, and others.” says Markus Riester, CEO of Multiphoton Optics. “The process and technology have been demonstrated already 8 years ago” adds Ruth Houbertz, CTO, “and now the time is right for bringing the technology to the market.” Multiphoton+Optics+GmbH+-+20140321+-+Press+release
