Berlin/Jena, Germany – Jenoptik has laid the foundation stone for the expansion of semiconductor production in a ceremony attended by around 80 invited guests, including representatives from business, the world of politics and industry, as well as the Jenoptik workforce at the Berlin-Adlershof site.

Jenoptik has invested 10 million euros for the expansion of its semiconductor plant, which includes new cleanroom technology and production equipment. This will more than double the production capacities starting in 2013.

The existing production facility in Berlin has reached the limits of its capacity and is being expanded as a result of the rapidly increasing demand, particularly from Asia, for future projects as well as for the advancing process of internationalization by the Lasers & Material Processing division.

The new building will more increase the gross floor area to around 3,400 sq m. The production area, including cleanroom area, will increase to 930 sq m and is expected to be available for production starting in 2013.

The laser bars from the production facility will be sent to customers all over the world and will be processed to create high-power diode lasers at Jenoptik in Jena. The group has the entire technology chain at its disposal – from the manufacture of high-power diode lasers, the most energy-efficient of all types of lasers, through to laser processing systems for material processing.

Jenoptik has had its own production facility in Berlin-Adlershof since 2006. The optoelectronic base material and its efficient manufacture are developed by Jenoptik in close cooperation with the locally based Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut for Ultra High Frequency Technology (FBH).
