Photonics is a strongly growing sector of the economy and a major research area in Europe. In Thuringia and in particular in Jena, the scientific and industrial location is shaped by universities, research institutes and companies in the field of optics and photonics. While the number of young, well-trained female graduates is high, women who hold a leading position in academia and high-tech industry are still underrepresented.
A commercial structured illumination microscope is available in our work group (Zeiss Elyra). The sample chamber can be heated enabling live cell imaging.
We offer several MatLab packages such as:
For absolute characterization of residual absorption in optical materials and coatings, a broad spectrum of laser sources is available, covering a wavelength range from the deep ultra-violet (DUV) to the infrared (IR) such as:
We also offer complete measurement setups for absorption measurements (LID technique) and high reflectivity measurements (cavity ring-down technique). Together with you we chose the most appropriate LID/CRD system configuration for your needs, assist you with eligible laser sources and design the whole setup including peripherals. Our service is completed by pre-shipping and final acceptance tests as well as on-site training.
For any questions or inquiries regarding optics characterization, please contact Dr. Christian Mühlig.
