Years of experience in electro-optical devices led to a variety of versatile PRODUCTS:


  • Photoactivation, photostimulation, photoswitching, photoconversion
  • Optogenetics
  • Photobleaching and FRAP
  • FRET
  • Uncaging, photolysis, drug photorelease
  • Ablation
  • DNA damage
  • Mapping of neural networks
  • Laser temperature jump
  • Flash heating
  • UV microscopy
  • Full field illumination

Many of our products have started as custom made systems designed to meet specific experimental requirements. Some of our past and current OEM PROJECTS include:

  • Microscope modification to transmit deep UV  radiation
  • Microscopy system for DNA damage using a 266 nm laser
  • Microscopy system for cold ablation of sea sediments and coral reef
  • Laser based IR system for the excitation of thermally sensitive paints
  • Spectrometer to measure spatially resolved spectra

This tradition continues at ROE and our ongoing dialog with researchers and collaborators leads to the improvement of our existing products and the development of new ones. If you have a special project, don't hesitate to contact us (+49 4103 701 890 or We would like to hear about it.
