Annual Report 2022 shows highlights of excellent scientific (collaboration) work
The new annual report of Leibniz IPHT covers almost 80 pages of entertaining stories, exciting institute highlights and scientific projects through a successful year 2022. Under the motto „Collaborate & Create“, the new edition focuses on collaborations that promote the exchange of knowledge and expertise, create synergies and generate new impulses for innovative solutions that make life safer, cleaner and healthier.
Inspiring institute collaborations and successful forms of cooperation with internal and external partners, which bring together creative minds, expertise and knowledge from different disciplines and which form the foundation of excellent science, are the central themes of the current Leibniz IPHT annual review.
Research and innovation strength not only require scientists with passion and creative ideas, but also close and trusting collaborations. Through research networks, clusters or alliances, which the institute maintains internally and externally as well as on a regional, national and international level, know-how can be bundled in a targeted manner, potentials of individual partners can be exploited, synergy effects can be achieved and technological progress can be made possible.
For example, the new Leibniz Center for Photonics in Infection Research (LPI) being established in Jena will generate market-ready solutions in the fight against infections, the nationwide Leibniz Research Alliance Health Technologies will improve healthcare in the future, and the international CRIMSON research project will take cancer diagnostics to a new level.
These and other stories and insights can be discovered in the new annual report 2022, which is available for download here:
Illuminated: Researchers investigate new physical phenomena on the nanoscale with microstructured fibers
Researchers at Leibniz IPHT have succeeded in contributing to significant advances in deciphering tiny nanoobjects: Using special optical fibers, they identified a new optical mode that enables uniform illumination along the entire length of the fiber, and determined the resolution limit of individual objects that could be measured with fibers. They thus lay the foundation for observing nanoparticles with unprecedented precision. The results of their studies were published in the renowned journals OPTICA and Nature Communications.
Shaping the world with light and women´s power: Leibniz IPHT offers career workshop in Jena
In order to encourage young female scientists to decide for a career in the photonics sector and to better connect them, the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) is organizing the 4th edition of its international workshop series "Women in Photonics". From November 26-30, 2023, the institute invites young female scientists to Jena to exchange ideas, make contacts and discover career paths in academia and industry. Registrations for participation are possible until August 31, 2023.
