Photonics for Infection Research: Federal Minister of Research and Thuringian Minister of Economics visit Leibniz IPHT



Light-based technologies offer enormous potential in the fight against infectious diseases. Their research as well as the development of effective diagnostic methods and therapies are to be revolutionized in Jena in the coming years with the Leibniz Center for Photonics in Infection Research (LPI). In order to get to know the Optical Valley as a traditional location for optical health technologies as well as the LPI, the Federal Minister of Education and Research, Bettina Stark-Watzinger, together with the Thuringian Minister of Economics, Science and Digital Society, Wolfgang Tiefensee, visited the city of science at Leibniz IPHT on November 17, 2022.

Kompaktes und flexibles Faserdesign sorgt dank 3D-Druck für effiziente Fokussierung und gestochen scharfe Bilder

Precisely focused light: Compact and flexible fiber design ensures efficient focusing and razor-sharp images thanks to 3D printing



An interdisciplinary team of researchers from Korea, Australia, Great Britain, and Germany – with participation of Leibniz IPHT – were able for the first time to optimize an optical glass fiber in such a way that light of different wavelengths can be focused extremely precisely. The level of accuracy is achieved by 3D nanoprinting of an optical lens applied to the end of the fiber. This opens up new possibilities for applications in microscopy and endoscopy as well as in laser therapy and sensor technology.
