The focus of our work is on the use of light as a tool in novel technologies for energy-efficient lighting, energy generation (photovoltaics), signal and data transmission, sensor technology and material processing. In addition, we develop the corresponding manufacturing methods and integrate them into industrial production processes.
Simulation of optimised novel (micro-) optical elements and structures for colour mixing, light control (diffractive and refractive optical elements), light coupling and light transmission (e. g. for solid-state lighting, LED)
Design and rapid prototyping of optical elements and structures
Transfer of (micro-)optical elements and structures into close-to-production prototypes and first steps in process development
Optical analysis as well as physical and chemical characterisation of macroscopic and microscopic films, structures and waveguides
