At B-PHOT we focus on the following strategic research domains in photonics:
free-form optics, photonic lab-on-chip, optical fiber sensors, nonlinear photonics, optical spectroscopy, and photonic integrated circuits. Our activities include optics and photonics theory, modelling and design, prototyping, metrology and testing, and demonstration, supported by state-of-the-art photonics technology platforms.
B-PHOT’s strengths lie in the flexibility, collaborative synergy and symbiosis of its researchers and research teams, who often create dedicated task forces to jointly tackle new emerging research challenges. We also have a very strong track record in research collaborations with other research groups from within VUB, but also with research teams from other universities in Flanders, Europe, Asia, America, and Australia.
