MONTFORT Laser is a laser enterprise which specializes on particularly compact pulsed laser sources mainly for scientific applications, analysis, test & measurement, defense and materials processing applications.

The main focus lies on nanosecond and ultrafast laser sources.  A strong R&D and engineering team is at your service for developing next generation laser sources.


Founded in 2011 by Dr. Daniel Kopf, former founder and CEO of High Q Laser (now part of Newport), the company commercializes novel laser schemes, with pulse energies from the nanojoule to the 100mJ levels, with unique compactness.

The name MONTFORT represents both regional tradition combined with strong concepts and products, as the name is borrowed from the regional noble family of Montfort which lived and ruled nearby the Lake of Constance in the medieval times…


A strong R&D and engineering team is at your service for developing next generation laser sources, and has a proven track record of successful completion of challenging projects with respect to both laser performance and unique compactness requirements.  The team is strengthened by a few collaboration partners who bring their own profound expertise as specialists to the team. 


Montfort is actively engaged in leading research and development, both triggered by customers as well as state or European programs, together with leading international research partners.
