Photonic detection deals with the research and implementation of systems used in the efficient, time-resolved, and spatially-resolved detection of light. Application fields include
The goal is to develop instruments with maximum sensitivity and to research novel sensor classes for biophotonic application fields.
To successfully fulfill such a mission, the creation and maintenance of a comprehensive chain of supporting, complementary technologies is required that build on targeted fundamental research and make the technical implementation of quantum-based sensor concepts and their system integration possible in highly sensitive measurement systems. Leibniz-IPHT has taken it upon itself to research basic solutions in new measurement technology in the life sciences and contributes to the sustainable solution of a central social issue.
