The FinnLight platform is fully accessible to external users, contributing not only to high-impact and cutting-edge science but also serving industrial actors.
Photonics technologies are a key aspect of future technological developments. Application fields include industrial process control, pharmaceutical analysis, health care, environmental monitoring, safety, and security. The infrastructure enables the development of new materials, advanced light sources, optical and integrated components for sensors and LIDAR applications, quantum technologies, photovoltaic technologies, AR/VR, and communications. Such national photonics-dedicated infrastructure is unique in Finland, ultimately offering new opportunities for national and international collaboration and establishing Finland as one of the main European Photonics.
