Doctor Benjamin Feigel graduated with highest honors presenting the potential of diamond and graphene for integrated nonlinear optical devices

A long title worthwhile as Benjamin has successfully shown the important opportunities carbon-based materials offer for integrated nonlinear optics during his PhD research. As in electronics, also in photonics the aim is to develop very compact components that are fabricated on a chip.

have a look at the Aftermovie of the Bootcamp Photonics for Bachelors

Some time ago we held our very first Bootcamp Photonics for Bachelors to highlight the potential of photonics to students. What is photonics all about? Is it very specific and limited or is it exact the opposite holding unlimited opportunities? Why has the European Commission proclaimed Photonics as a key enabling technology for the 21st century? The Aftermovie gives you a flavour of an intensive and rewarding day...
