Once again this year, a Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to scientists who dedicate their research to the subject of light. The prize recognizes the progress made in the field of laser research and the practical application of laser light as a groundbreaking achievement for our society.
In March 2017 the DFG established the Priority Program “Electronic-Photonic Integrated Systems for Ultrafast Signal Processing” (SPP 2111). The program is designed to run for six years. The present call invites proposals for the first three-year funding period.
Prof. Dr. Wolf Gero Schmidt and coworkers successfully published their recent investigations on photo-excitation as cause for a phase transition at the quantum limit in NATURE.
Prof. Dr. Christoph Scheytt is coordinator of the new DFG priority programme “Electronic-Photonic Integrated Systems for Ultrafast Signal Processing”.
Professor Shuji Nakamura, laureate of the Nobel prize for Physics in 2014, was invited for a special lecture at the University of Paderborn.
Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the CeOPP, the TRR 142 and the GRK 1464 managed to invite Professor Nakamura as special guest for this event.
