B-PHOT’s research in the EU-funded GRAPHENICS project shortlisted for the European Innovation Radar Prize 2016

Published on 08 August 2016

Team members co-working for the GRAPHENICS project are JinLuo Cheng (University of Toronto, Canada), Iwona Pasternak (Institute of Electronic Materials Technology, Poland), Jürgen Van Erps (B-PHOT, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium), Nathalie Vermeulen (B-PHOT, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium), Tym Ciuk (Institute of Electronic Materials Technology, Poland), Aleksandra Krajewska (Institute of Electronic Materials Technology, Poland) and Nikolai Tolstik (Technische Universität Wien, Austria).

Young B-PHOT professors developed a novel approach for converting one wavelength of light into another on a photonic chip. Their ‘automatic quasi-phase-matching’ approach enables efficient wavelength conversion in photonic integrated circuits that comply with the rules for mass-manufacturing in large-scale photonic foundries.

B-PHOT joins European InSPECT consortium for real-time cancer diagnosis

Each year 12 million people are confronted with the diagnosis of cancer, early detection is vital to reduce the mortality degree up to 30% (source WHO). Without a clear diagnosis, a second biopsy is required which increases the risks of complications and causes delays in treatments for patients. B-PHOT participates in the European InSPECT research that addresses the challenge to develop smart biophotonic devices for physicians that allow real-time diagnoses for cancer.
