Product Development Process


We are often asked about what makes LASER COMPONENTS so unique. On our webpages, you have gained some insight into our very different production facilities. All areas of production enjoy a vast professional network; in addition, we have a cross-disciplinary R&D department in Germany that is active in our core technological areas. This combination of different competencies makes us quite special.

The following infographic shows the typical development process – from an idea to series production and beyond, including product care. The range of development projects is a challenge that we gladly face: This makes it possible to carry out both customizations in general and bilateral, protected ideas. 


We are all creative, but sometimes the formulation of an idea is challenging: We support our customers and bring solution-oriented approaches to paper.

02 NDA

Ideas must be protected: Together we clarify the framework for an NDA. We edit your proposal directly or suggest our own draft.

03 specification

The expectation of the development result must be defined and confirmed: For this purpose, we will gladly create a specification sheet.

04 Implementation

Let the fun begin! We work project oriented, with milestones and schedules - and keep you informed of interim results.

05 Verification

The results are documented in a detailed manner, and the test certificates serve as proof of achievement of a milestone.

06 Sample approval

Sample approval is carried out by the customer - in the previously specified application.

07 Series Production

The move toward production is a particular challenge. The process definitions are key;  the component is transferred to production in close collaboration with our specialists.

08 Product care

We are always open to hearing your thoughts and experiences: Further developments are often based on feedback from our customers. 


Directors of R&D

Richard Kim

+ LASER COMPONENTS Detector Group  Dr. Richard Kim joined the LASER COMPONENTS Detector Group in 2023 from California, where he was responsible for leading innovations in Silicon UV detectors, Lead Salts, III-V InAsSb, InAs/GaSb T2SL MWIR detectors and MWIR ICLEDs.

Earlier in his career, he focused on path finding research efforts in the areas of photonic integrated waveguide circuits based on Si and III-V materials, LiNbO3 electro-optic modulators/switches, solar cells etc. He holds tens of US/Korea patents and has published over 60 papers in various conferences and journals. 


Dr. Sina Malobabic

+ LASER COMPONENTS Germany. After studying physics and mathematics, Sina specialized in optical technologies as a doctoral scholar at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. and started as a development engineer at LASER COMPONENTS GmbH in 2016.

In 2021, she took over responsibility for technology-oriented tasks, which not only includes the development of coatings and substrate handling, but also the entire measurement technology for optical and optoelectronic components.

Since July 2022, she has also been in charge of product development and manages projects from fiber technology as well as new developments and optimization of optoelectronic components such as laser modules or detectors.

Said Rouifed, PHD

+ LASER COMPONENTS Canada  Saïd has expertise in III-V and IV semiconductors for optoelectronic and photonic devices, and profits from his significant industrial and academic experience as scientific researcher at University Paris-Saclay (France), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), and University of Southampton (UK). 

He joined Laser Components Canada in March 2020 as a senior optoelectronic scientist, focusing epitaxy and microfabrication methods to enhance laser-based products. In 2022, he led the “chip-group”, managing two doctoral candidates and introducing new technologies for pulsed laser diodes. Since 2023, he has overseen the R&D department, focusing on the design, fabrication, testing, and packaging of laser chips.
