B-Phot has a nice track record in the Photonics Research. The director of B-Phot, Prof. Dr.Ir. Hugo Thienpont received for his excellent contribution to research a Methusalem Grant.
This page shows all B-Phot research areas.
Biophotonics is an ambitious, multidisciplinary research area that utilizes light-based technologies in medicine and life sciences. The term derives from two words of Greek origin: ‘bios’ means life and ‘phos’ light. Biophotonics refers to the interplay between light and biological matter.
B-PHOT has developed expertise in modelling the optical and thermo-mechanical characteristics of different types of MOF and has established a broad portfolio of novel MOF designs for diverse applications.
Advanced simulation models, in-house developed design algorithms and high-quality demonstrators are our tools to develop innovative optical components and systems in the domain of illumination optics and visual displays.
Our research focuses on the use of absorption, fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy in a variety of application domains ...
Micro-optics is a generic technology that allows the manipulation of light and the management of photons with “micron”- and “sub-micron”-scale structures and components.
The development of integrated optical devices on semiconductor wafers has dramatically changed the world of optics, photonics, and of science and technology in general. The integrated photonics group at B-PHOT aims at conceptualizing, designing and demonstrating novel integrated photonic devices relying on both linear and nonlinear light-matter interactions.
