Laser security engineering—increasing security through lasers

In these times of global political, social and religious crises and conflicts, security remains a hot topic. Photonics-based security engineering, which is unrivalled in terms of its performance level, is increasingly used to satisfy this basic human need.

The industry for security services and technology is booming. In Germany alone, the annual turnover achieved with electronic security technology amounts to 4.145 billion euros. In addition to that, projections indicate future annual growth rates of up to 30 percent. A growth in investments into surveillance systems is very likely, which implies greater expenditure in this area.

Laser security engineering: a rapidly growing market

Laser systems play a significant role in current efforts to satisfy current requirements for technology-based security as they outperform conventional surveillance and infrared cameras on multiple levels. The most important applications of optical security engineering include:
  • Terahertz technology
  • Automatic person identification
  • Biometric identification methods
  • Fingerprint analysis
  • Head-up displays
  • Laser warning systems

The latest laser-based processes and optical security systems have a seemingly unlimited potential, which is why they have been a focal topic of LASER World of PHOTONICS for quite a while. They are crucial for developing future security technology and are already in use in various fields today: Security industry and defense technology, aerospace engineering, space surveillance, shipping, transport and traffic.
