The Company RP Photonics
RP Photonics is an independent and privately owned company. It is engaging in the following business areas:
- Digital marketing:
Our RP Photonics Buyer's Guide is the natural companion of our famous RP Photonics Encyclopedia. With our advertising package, we can generate far more sales leads than any other photonics website worldwide.
- Simulation and design software:
Our flagship product is RP Fiber Power for the design of fiber amplifiers and lasers, but also for passive fiber optics.
- Technical consulting services in a wider sense:
e.g. also including tailored training courses
These areas are also nicely shown on our entry page.
RP Photonics is owned and run by the founder himself, Dr. Rüdiger Paschotta. He is internationally known as an expert in photonics technology. He is committed to highest professional standards in all respects and regularly achieves a very high level of customer satisfaction. He is also proud to substantially contribute to the advance of photonics research and business worldwide, e.g. with his encyclopedia.

RP Photonics Consulting GmbH (Germany)
Originally (in 2004), RP Photonics was founded in Zürich, Switzerland. In 2010, RP Photonics moved to Bad Dürrheim, Germany (Waldstr. 17, D-78073 Bad Dürrheim), and kept the original name. Since February 2022, RP Photonics is back in Switzerland. It is now an AG (stock corporation), and “consulting” has been removed from the company name, since it is no longer the central business area.
