The laser is a universal tool in materials processing. Focusing a high-power laser to a single spot allows various applications like welding and laser-based additive manufacturing. Heating and consequent melting of the material mainly drives these processes in which the laser beam acts as a heat sou...

Product design is the formation, formulation, handling, manufacturing and characterization of complex multiphase products across all length scales from molecules to particles and complex materials and devices. The desired product properties follow the demands of a variety of applications. These incl...

  The i-MEET, namely the Institute Materials for Electronics and Energy Technology, is dedicated to the functional aspect of electronic properties and applicability of different material classes. One research focus is the synthesis, characterization and processing of nanocrystals for optoele...

The year 2021 was the 30th anniversary of the initial proposal by Philip Russell for a novel type of optical fiber that would guide light by the newly-proposed photonic bandgap effect: photonic crystal fibers (PCF). Compared to conventional step-index fibers, the very first solid-core PCF, with arra...

Andreas Maier is a professor of computer science working in the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning. After graduation in 2009 he started working as post-doctoral fellow at the Radiological Sciences Laboratory at the Stanford University. Subsequently he became innovation project manage...

Maximilian Waldner is a clinician scientist with a specialization in gastroenterology. Since the beginning of his scientific career at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, he has been interested in applications of optical imaging techniques for the evaluation of inflammatory diseases and canc...

Oliver Friedrich had a quite diverse education, studying Medicine and Physics at University of Heidelberg, then specializing as Physiologist and Biophysicist before finally ending up at FAU as Biotechnologist with a strong focus on label-free optical technologies development and applications. In bet...

After her study on material science, Marion Merklein received a PhD in mechanical engineering. Her PhD thesis is about laser forming of aluminum alloys and the influence of the laser forming process on the materials‘ microstructure and mechanical characteristics. In 2006 she finished her habilita...

Andreas Erdmann studied physics at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, where he received a PhD for his work on “Nonlinear optical phase conjugation in photorefractive Bi12GeO20 crystals and applications in optical metrology”. From 1990 to 1995 he worked as a post-doc at the University of Osna...

After finishing a doctoral program at ETH Zurich in 2000, Bernd Witzigmann has spent 4 years in industrial research in the US, which then was followed by an assistant professorship at ETH Zurich in the electrical engineering department again. From 2008 to 2021, he has been heading the Computational ...
