Photonics Research in Erlangen is as exciting as diverse. Spanning from fundamental experiments on quantum theory and material characterization to renewable energies, medical diagnostics, industrial processing techniques and beyond, optics and photonics impact a broad range of highly relevant research topics.
Latest results are published in scientific journals with high impact in the academic field. However, these works aim at an expert audience in their respective area, and often are hard to discover or understand for the general public. Thus, SAOT spotlights selected topics from the broad photonics research all over Erlangen in more detail.
In our Publication Spotlights, recent scientific results of our doctoral researchers are presented. Our Lab Spotlights give insight into latest projects running in laboratories located in Erlangen. Starting this summer, our Research Spotlights and Scientist Spotlights will complement this scientific outreach with interviews and detailled impressions of well-chosen projects. This collection is constantly growing and adjusting to the latest trends in Erlangen’s research on photonics and optical technologies.
