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.

The 21st century will be the age of optics: Optical fibre networks are the backbone of modern mobile communication technology and high-resolution camera systems are the prerequisite for autonomous driving. At the international symposium "Future Optics" on 25 and 26 September 2019 in Hannover, more than 180 scientists discussed how optical technologies could shape the future. Björn Thümler, Minister for Science and Culture in Lower Saxony, and Prof. Dr. Volker Epping, President of Leibniz University Hannover officially opened the symposium. PhoenixD organised the symposium in collaboration with Volkswagen Foundation.

The kick-off symposium attracted around 180 participants
