Application until May 3rd
Primary goals of the research focus Fiber Optics are
For this purpose, the material scientific and technological expertise for the manufacture of special optical fibers is combined in a wide parameter range with the scientific competencies for the characterization and application of fiber-optic components and systems. A strength of the institute is the coverage of the closed chain from material preparation, fiber preform development, fiber production, fiber functionalization, and fiber integration to fiber system application.
Research activities include the investigation of novel fiber concepts for life science or environmental issues, including disease diagnosis, advanced imaging in living organisms, and monitoring of pollution in gas- or liquid-containing environments.
