Hamamatsu Photonics

5th Technology Days


  • Welcome to Hamamatsu Photonics' 5th Technology Day 'Fresh from the lab' in Solothurn!


    18th November 2019.





    H4 Hotel Solothurn

    Schänzlistraße 5

    4500 Solothurn - Switzerland


    Technology Day (18th November 2019) from 9:30 -17:00


    With this year’s theme, “Fresh from the lab” Hamamatsu will introduce a range of technologies we have been closely working on in the following application areas; Analytics and NDT, MPPC/SiPM & 3D Imaging and VCSEL and Beam Steering.

    The day will offer a number of networking opportunities and we hope that the topics covered on the agenda will spark interest and debate amongst attendees. There will also be a range of demonstrations taking place highlighting a range of Hamamatsu’s technologies.

    At Hamamatsu we pride ourselves on meeting our customers’ needs and we hope Technology Days will offer a forum for discussion and an opportunity for us to learn more about the applications and products you are using in your given field.

  • Speakers & Abstracts

    Dr. Hans-Anton Keserue




    Hans-Anton Keserue studied Biotechnology at the École supérieure de Biotechnologie Strasbourg. During his PhD in a joint project between ETHZ, Eawag and BAG he developed the basis for rqmicro’s rapid detection technology. He received a Pioneer Fellowship from the ETHZ to commercialize this technology and co-founded rqmicro in 2013 to revolutionize the Industrial Microbiology Market. Until inception of rqmicro he acts as CEO and President of the Board and drives the company to become a global leader in microbial detection technology.



    Rapid detection and quantification of bacteria using a cartridge based flow cytometer



    The gold-standard to detect bacteria is based on cultivation. This is a tedious and time-consuming process, that resultsin high variability.
    The rqmicro method is based on immunomagnetic separation and single cell counting, offering very fast time-to-result andabsolute quantification.


    Dr. Matthias Wolf, Metrology Engineer

    HEXAGON Manufacturing Intelligence



    Matthias Wolf graduated from University of Kaiserslautern with a degree in Physics in 2007. He earned his PhD at the same institution with his theisis on ultrafast photodynamics of flavin chromophors in 2012. His first industry position was in the technology department of the Laser Optics division of Carl Zeiss Semiconductor Manufacturing Technologies in Oberkochen, Germany, where his focus was on integration technology for extreme-UV light source optics. After a stint in the Metrology group of Carl Zeiss Corporate Research and Development he joined the Laser Trackers Product Line at Leica, part of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, in 2015. As a Metrology and System Development Engineer he is responsible for the overall accuracy of optical dimensional measurement devices, such as Laser Trackers and Scanners for industrial applications.



    Laser scanning for industrial metrology: time-of-flight at sub-mm accuracy in the Leica ATS600



    Laser Scanners utilizing the time-of-flight method for optical distance determination usually achieve accuracies in the mm-range at best. With the Leica ATS600 Hexagon Manufacturing introduced a novel device combining laser tracking with direct laser scanning for the industrial market. With an accuracy in the sub-mm range, the ATS600 is an ideal solution for customers in the aerospace, energy and heavy machinery industries, where large objects have to be measured at high accuracy. We will show how a unique combination of optical technologies, from light source to detector, and advanced algorithms enabled us to improve the accuracy of the pre-existing Wave-Form-Digitizer (WFD) method used in traditional terrestrial laser scanners by more than a factor of ten.
