 SLN (Swiss Photonics and Laser Network), formerly Swisslaser.net is a non-profit association. SLN is the Swiss national technology platform for photonics and serves as a network for a common vision and growth of the photonics industry. It is the declared goal of the SLN to promote the competitiveness of its members through the support of the innovation forces.

  • SLN serves the full field of photonics, including laser beam material processing, photonic manufacturing, optical input/output (imaging and photonic life science), optical communication, photovoltaics and lightning.
  • SLN serves companies, research facilities, and universities in the field of photonics from basic science over applied science, technology development, manufacturing and selling of photonic components and applications.We support the industry and research institutes in finding research partners and funding.
  • SLN supports the networking within Switzerland and establishes contacts within Europe, especially to the European technology platform Photonics21.

The activities of SLN are supported by the Swiss innovation promotion agency CTI.
