Photonics Innovation Center

In the Photonics Innovation Center several technology platforms are available to support innovation, ranging from high-end manufacturing technologies for optical components to characterisation and demonstration setups for photonic systems. The B-PHOT technology platforms are accessible by companies through bilateral agreements, Innovation Boosting of Flanders Make or via European Innovation project like ACTPHAST

Technology Platforms

  • Innovative Optical Design

    The optical modelling and design platform hosts a team of researchers with wide-ranging expertise and know-how in the modelling and design of photonic systems.

  • Surface and Optical Characterization Services

    The metrology platform has comprehensive competence in optical metrology in general, and in quantitative optical measurements and measurement standards in particular.

  • Manufacturing of Photonics components

    In the B-PHOT Innovation Center, a complete pilot line for free form optics is available. Free form optics for imaging and non-imaging applications, in glass, plastic, semiconductor material can be realized for prototypes, molding or low volume production.

  • Photonics Demonstrator Platforms

    For each of its Research Tracks B-PHOT has invested in well-elaborated demonstrator platforms to test different functional aspects of proof-of-concept demonstrators for different application domains.
