Growing scientific interest in the field of astrophotonics

The relatively young research field astrophotonics is expanding and gaining recognition in the international scientific community. Following the initiative of members of the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam, the two renowned research journals JOSA B und Applied Optics published a joint issue featuring the latest developments in astrophotonics. innoFSPEC members Dr. Aline Dinkelaker und Dr. Aashia Rahman worked as guest editors and authored the introduction of the issue.

Visit to B-Cube Dresden

innoFSPEC members Dr. Nabarun Polley and Dr. Peter Werner have recently visited their collaborator Dr. Yong Xu in Dresden to perform and discuss joint experiments for the OptiZeD project. This project is a collaboration between the two Centres for Innovation Competence innoFSPEC Potsdam (PIs: Dr. Claudia Pacholski & Prof. Dr. Ilko Bald) and B-Cube Dresden (PIs: Prof. Dr. Yixin Zhang, Prof. Dr. Michael Schlierf, Prof. Dr. Stefan Diez). It aims to develop minimal invasive fibre sensors for the in-vivo diagnosis and treatment of cancer tissue. The first visit to Dresden yielded promising results. More exchanges are planned soon!
