Interdisciplinary Conference on Optical Spectroscopy

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.

innoFSPEC goes Physics, Chemistry and Biology

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.
