ADOPSYS (ADvanced OPtical SYStem Design)
There is a severe shortage in the European photonics industry of graduates and PhDs with broad expertise in modelling and design of industrially relevant optical systems and components. This shortage is aggravated because most applied design methodologies are strongly based on previous experience of the designer. In general, these methods also have a limited efficiency because they heavily rely on trial and error. The present project has therefore two objectives of equal importance:
The development of disruptive new optical design tools that are broadly applicable to optical design problems and that significantly increase design productivity and efficiency;
Advanced training through research and hands-on practice of highly skilled optical scientists given by leading European universities and European optical industries.
