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 clusters:

Our research activities are divided into four main groupings which we call clusters. Each cluster contains 3-4 research groups.
Below, you can see a presentation of our clusters.
The research groups n the Communication Technologies cluster are working on all aspects of current and future communication technologies.
Cluster leader: Professor Lars Dittmann

The research groups n the Dynamic Photonics cluster are working on observing and mapping dynamic processes of and with light.
Cluster leader: Professor Peter Uhd Jepsen
The research groups n the Light Sources & Industrial Sensors cluster are working on the application of theories about light.
Cluster Leader: Professor Paul Michael Petersen
The research groups n the Nanophotonics cluster are working with the fundamental interaction between light and matter, particularly nanostructures. We also explore the possibilities for creating new and better components e.g. for ultrafast communication.
Cluster 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.
CNG = Center for nanostructured graphene
