Program

The Physics School “Applied Photonics”: 

The School covers advancing photonics research topics and driving applications of a key enabling technology in future technological innovation. A hands-on workshop in optical design software, comprehensive overviews of state-of-the-art scientific and industrial topics as active participation phases provide an ideal forum for advanced Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. students to deepen their knowledge and foster interdisciplinary aspects. Participants are encouraged to present and discuss their research work in poster sessions throughout the school.


Organization

Each day of the School is dedicated to a main topic addressed by leading researchers, engineers, and practitioners, renowned companies as well as large scale research facilities. The speakers do provide insights into the industry and research landscape, career paths, and forthcoming technologies.

The School covers advancing photonics research topics and driving applications of a key enabling technology that is seen as one of the most important building blocks in future technological innovation. Photonic systems are ubiquitous in modern life, like e.g. in metrology, biomedical applications, space and earth exploration, production technologies, information processing, and imaging. A hands-on workshop in optical design software, comprehensive overviews of state-of-the-art scientific and industrial applications as active participation phases provide an ideal forum for advanced Bachelor, Master, and Ph.D. students to deepen their knowledge and foster interdisciplinary aspects. The participants are expected to have at least a basic knowledge of one of the addressed fields in photonics and are ideally active in a related research field. Poster sessions throughout the school offer opportunities for presenting and discussing the young scientist’s research.
