In the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD more than 100 physicists, mechanical engineers, chemists, electrical engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians work together in the field of optical technologies. Photonics is one of the key technologies of our century: Optical glass fibres are the backbone of the Internet and mobile networks. Optical sensors and high-resolution cameras are necessary for autonomous driving, and lasers are replacing the scalpel in medical technology. PhoenixD is exploring the possibilities of digitalization for novel optical systems as well as their production and application.

Light is more than just a material. It is both a tool and an essential enabler for numerous (new) digital applications. Whether smartphone cameras, online streaming via optical fibre, laser welding of car bodies and 3D imaging in medicine – optical technologies (light-based technologies) make our everyday digital life possible in many places. Three researchers of PhoenixD – Dr. Reinhard Caspary, Dr. Marc-André Dittrich and Dr. Alexander Wolf – will explain in this PhoenixD talk during the "November of Science 2021" (#knowember) in Hannover (Germany) why the development of this key technology can only be done interdisciplinary.
