Photonics Innovation Center

Since 2013 the Photonics Innovation Center houses high-tech platforms for micro-optical design to an advanced polymer prototyping line including ultra-precision diamond tooling, hot embossing, laser welding and 3D laser lithography. 

With its specialized micro-optical measurement center in clean room conditions and a fully equipped technology hall, B-PHOT offers a complete value chain  from material development, optical modeling, optical characterization, rapid prototyping, low-cost low-volume replication to proof-of-concept demonstration of micro-optical modules for the integration of photonics technology.

Have a look at our video about the Photonics Innovation Center to discover the wide range of innovation opportunities:

The VUB Brussels Photonics team has extensive research collaboration agreements with top-level research groups in Europe, in the United States, Australia, and Asia.

The Photonics Innovation Center is located in Gooik, approximately 20 kms outside of Brussels.
