Girls’ Day and Self-Assertive Students’ Day at IPHT

Optical fibers, microfluidics, DNA extraction: IPHT opened its (laboratory) doors for students. As part of Girls’ Day and Self-Assertive Students’ Day, students visited the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT) and took a glance behind the scenes of the science and research stage. more...


Characterizing Tissue Samples Quickly and Easily

Research scientists at IPHT and the Institute for Physical Chemistry at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena were successful in imaging tissue samples five times faster than with conventional Raman microspectroscopy. This was carried out by combining a light-sheet microscope with a novel imaging spectrometer. more...


Special Honor for Jürgen Popp

The renowned American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) admitted Professor Jürgen Popp, scientific director at IPHT and director of the Institute for Physical Chemistry at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena, into its College of Fellows. Jürgen Popp was selected based on his significant contributions in the development and clinical application of Raman spectroscopy in the field of infection diagnostics. The ceremonial induction was held in Washington D.C., U.S.A., on April 4, 2016. more...
