Detailed understanding of materials and optical processes opens new horizons.

Nanotechnology is one key technology: quantum photonics produces single photon devices for telecommunications, silicon photonics connects semiconductor and optical technologies, green photonics paves the way for a sustainable reduction of power consumption. With new and improved methods for the solution of partial differential equations, including HPC solutions, and new methods in image analysis we support fundamental research in physics, the design and manufacturing of real-world components, and non-destructive material testing. Application examples include meta-materials, solar cells, bioengineering, scatterometry and industrial CT.
