The administration team and the technical personnel in optical, electronic and mechanical workshops and the IT sector ensure an efficient infrastructure for innovative and profitable research activities.

The head of the department is Roland Becker, who is also the deputy general manager.

Economic development

As an institute for application-oriented fundamental research in the field of optic technologies, Laser-Laboratorium Göttingen has been an important partner for universities and companies since 1987.

The Laser-Laboratorium receives an essential portion of its basic financing in the form of an institutional grant from the German State of Lower Saxony. In addition, as a globally recognised research institute for applied fundamental research in the field of optic technologies, LLG has for years generated a consistently high level of third-party funds through research on behalf of industrial customers as well as from projects for the German Federal Government and the German research organisation DFG.


Human resources development

At the end of 2018, Laser Laboratorium Göttingen employed a total of 50 staff members, of which the majority were in temporary training and employment. As highly qualified technical staff, all employees of the institute have excellent opportunities in the labour market due to the close-knit network of small and medium-sized enterprises as well as large companies. To date, 99 per cent of LLG employees have immediately gone on to new positions of responsibility following their work with the LLG. Of those, some 50 per cent were positions with businesses and research institutes in Lower Saxony.



In 2018, three doctoral candidates concluded their fellowship at the LLG in cooperation with Georg August Universität Göttingen with very good results. For the training of bachelor and master students, the LLG works closely with – in addition to Georg August Universität Göttingen – the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hildesheim/Holzminden/Goettingen. Additionally, the LLG regularly offers apprentices a first look at the field of modern laser research.



Much support is required to maintain innovative and efficient research operations. As such, in addition to laboratories equipped with high-quality equipment in the fields of mechanics, electronics and optics, our scientists have at their disposal  well-trained technical staff as well as reliable administration under the leadership of Roland Becker, who is also the Deputy Chairman of the LLG.
