Best talk award for Nabarun Polley

Nabarun Award

How can the innoFSPEC core technology Photon Density Wave (PDW) Spectroscopy provide added value for inline monitoring? With his talk at the Photonics 2018 conference at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, New Delhi, India, innoFSPEC fellow Dr. Nabarun Polley has recently won a best talk award. His talk had the title "Fibre optical Photon Density Wave spectroscopy for inline monitoring of highly concentrated biogenic liquid materials". Congratulations, Nabarun!

The International Conference on Fiber Optics and Photonics - PHOTONICS, is a premier conference in the emerging areas of Photonic science and technology. It provides a forum for interaction and exchange of ideas among scientists, engineers, researchers, and users actively engaged in the area of Photonics.

Cooperation with ILU e.V.

We are pleased to announce our cooperation with Institut für Lebensmittel- und Umweltforschung e.V. (ILU). With the help of a 115 photobioreactor, we are now able to focus on the targeted optimisation of biomass production. In this context, online sensor technology will be implemented to characterise the light distribution in the photobioreactor and to monitor growth processes.

"Joint Labs - Using synergies for joint innovations" - This was the motto of the first Joint Lab workshop on Monday, 10 Dec 2018 at Fraunhofer-Konferenzzentrum in Potsdam Golm. 

The aim was to enter into a dialogue with actors from the knowledge and technology transfer sector and to exchange experiences on the Joint Lab cooperation format. The expectations of the team from the Technologiecampus Golm were exceeded!

We would like to thank all participants for the stimulating input and discussions and all contributors for the successfull event. 

Here you can find the review of the successful workshop. The review is available only in German.

Successful 4th innoFSPEC team workshop

From Oct 1st to Oct 2nd, the entire innoFSPEC team came together for the fourth team workshop in Bad Belzig.

On the first day, the team enjoyed a key note talk on galactic archaeology given by Prof. Matthias Steinmetz, director of the Leibniz Institute of Astrophysics in Potsdam. Besides, in separate sessions the innoFSPEC team discussed current research projects and topics such as 3D modeling and printing, on how to design experiments or on static light scattering. And in plenary sessions all participants learned more about cultural diversity and communication in science and expanded their knowledge in proposal writing and funding opportunities.

Exciting topics were discussed, new questions raised and ideas for cooperative projects developed. We are looking forward to the next workshop in order to push this further!
