Meet us! innoFSPEC events and workshops

Get to know more about our events that we plan for 2018. We would be happy to meet you there!
Please contact us if you have any questions regarding these events.

11-12 October 2018
GDCh Colloquium Chimicum, focus topic „light“
Where: University of Potsdam, Campus Golm, house 29, Karl-Liebknecht-Straße 24-25, 14476 Potsdam-Golm

Talks, for example:
"When photons meet life sciences" (apl. Prof. Dr. Michael U. Kumke, Institut für Chemie, Physikalische Chemie, Potsdam)
"When photons meet particles: from polymer dispersions to milk and beer" (Dr. Oliver Reich, PDW Analytics GmbH, Potsdam)
"Optical fibres - from light transportation to sensors"  (Dr. Roman Flehr, Loptek GmbH & Co. KG, Berlin)

The Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker (GDCh) is the largest chemical society in continental Europe with members from academia, education, industry and other areas. The GDCh supports chemistry in teaching, research and application and promotes the understanding of chemistry in the public.

On June 12, 2018, innoFSPEC Potsdam and Brandenburg Invest (WFBB) together hosted the conference 'Optical Spectroscopy' in Golm. The aim was to shed light on the broad range of different spectroscopic technologies and their applications in the fields of structure, product and process analytics as well as in Biology, Geology, Environmental Sciences and Medicine. Over 60 participants from industry and science exchanged their views and ideas on how to bring the diverse disciplines together and how to develop joint ideas and projects in this context. For more details please go here.

The conference was part of the actitities in the field of Optical Analytics in the Photonics Cluster of the federal states of Berlin and Brandenburg (innoBB). Next to Microelectronics, Optical Analytics is counted among the most significant key technologies of the 21st century. At the same time, this technology field, also on a European level, pertains to the five so called Key Enabling Technologies.

Portrait article on innoFSPEC research group leader Dr. Roland Hass

In the recent issue of the university magazine 'Portal Wissen', you can find a portrait article on our colleague Dr. Roland Hass. Roland is heading the innoFSPEC research group Applied Analytical Photonics. His research focus is the development of fibre-optical photonic components and their combination for spectroscopy and sensing in the processing industry and in its related research. 

The full article can be read in English here or downloaded in German here.

On the occasion of innoFSPEC Potsdam's 10th anniversary, we recently hosted a research and innovation forum at Campus Golm, University of Potsdam. The motto was 'innoFSPEC goes Physics, Chemistry and Biology'. After greetings from national and state ministries as well as from the University of Potsdam, the audience enjoyed several talks and gained exciting insights into different disciplines. Please get some impressions here.

Thanks to all speakers and guests who attended the event and celebrated with us! See you again soon.

EPIC is the foremost industry association that promotes the sustainable development of organisations working in the field of photonics in Europe.

Martin Roth was invited to give a keynote speech on April 19, 2018, at the annual general meeting of EPIC at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin, celebrating the 15 anniversary of the organization. With a presentation entitled "Imagination – Invention – Innovation: the case of astrophotonics for technology transfer“ the participants were taken through a slide show from impressive photographs of stars, nebulae, and galaxies, to the application of photonics for astrophysical instrumentation.
