Novoptel GmbH in Paderborn, Germany, was founded by Reinhold Noé and Benjamin Koch in 2010 as a spin-off of the University of Paderborn, with the aim of developing and delivering novel optics and electronics for telecommunication. Leveraging 2+ decades of pioneer experience in optical polarization control as well as knowledge about the needs of the telecom industry, the two founders and the team have brought this technology to an unprecedented maturity and have developed desktop units, modules and intellectual property cores for ultrafast optical endless polarization control, polarization scrambling and polarimetry.
