Fast-paced Science: Fast Project Application, Faster Images
In December, a new project supported by the European Union started at the Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT). Further partners in this project include Friedrich Schiller University at Jena and the French company FASTLITE. In place of the usual, fixed amount of support funds, partners in this project are compensated with a free-of-charge technology transfer.
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.
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.
