Stories from Fotonik

Photonics engineering is an exciting science that uses light-matter interaction in natural and artificially structured materials for generating and manipulating energy. It covers all technical aspects of light, ranging from the visible ultraviolet to the distant infrared.

The many different aspects of photonics engineering invite for a large variety of research and education areas. At DTU Fotonik we cover them with ground breaking research and high standard education programmes.

We are involved in many exciting initiatives and research centres, and we would like to share some of our great stories with you. So keep reading if you want to learn more about how we use photonics engineering to contribute to solving many of modern day society’s challenges.

This page is dedicated to storytelling. It features our talk-show Innovation Corner as well as written stories that will take you into our labs and give you an insight into life at DTU Fotonik.

Because light matters!
