At DTU Fotonik you enter a world of different nationalities gathered around world class research
Engineers who are educated within our research areas, are now working all over the world in jobs that they are passionate about. Their job titles include: Director, Cheif Technical Officer, Technical Development Engineer, etc.
We have also asked our own researchers about their passion for photonics.
Research at DTU Fotonik
Our research is grouped in four sections:
Our research activities are divided into the following four sections; Communications Technology, Nonlinear Optics & Biophotonics, Light Sources & Industrial Sensors and Nanophotonics. Each section contains 3-4 research groups.
DTU Fotonik is also connected to three research centers, including NATEC Centre of Excellence, Centre for Silicon Photonics for Optical Communications (SPOC) and Center for Nanostructured Graphene (CNG).
The research groups in Communication Technologies are working on all aspects of current and future communication technologies. Enter.
Group Leader: Professor Lars Dittmann
The research groups in Dynamic Photonics are working on observing and mapping the dynamic processes of light. Enter.
Group Leader: Professor Peter Uhd Jepsen
The research groups in Light Sources & Industrial Sensors are working on the application of theories about light. Enter.
Group Leader: Professor Paul Michael Petersen
The research groups in Nanophotonics are working with the fundamental interaction between light and matter as well as the possibilities for creating components e.g. for ultrafast communication. Enter.
Group Leader: Professor Jesper Mørk
The department is also an active participant in the research center CNG which is funded by DNRF Centre of Excellence and led by DTU Nanotech's Antti-Pekka Jauho from DTU Nanotech.
