Upcoming MPSP Events

Explore Photonics

The Max Planck School of Photonics offers interested listeners all over the world the opportunity to gain insights into exciting research on photonics in various formats and for free. Here you find all dates and registration links for the upcoming events.

Lectures and Talks

Our goal is to stregthen the young Photonics community by making the latest photonics research accessible to you in free lectures and events. That is why, for example, our Fellows, who are among the best photonics researchers in the world, give an MPSP Lecture Series. Together with partners like OSA or SPIE chapters, we also organize many other exciting talks and lectures. Finally, you will also find interesting public events from our partner institutions and other organizations featured here. So have a look around, register and join the network!

SEMICONDUCTING 2D-MATERIALS: PHOTONIC PROPERTIES AND APPLICATION POTENTIAL
In this lecture we shall discuss optical properties of Transition-Metal Dichalcogenides, a class of monolayer materials with many interesting optical properties. We will then discuss how they can be integrated with optical systems and why they have a few fancy tricks up their sleave that classic materials just don’t. Based on this we shall explore some recent experiments and speculate wildly about possible applications. more
You think there’s nothing going on in 2021 because of the pandemic? Far from it!
Together with the Fraunhofer IOFwe invite you once again this year to our “Photonics Days”. The international networking and career event for students and PhD candidates from the fields of optics and photonics will be held digitally and invites you to a colorful online program.
In addition to interactive workshops and seminars which will give you insights into everyday scientific life and career planning, exciting keynotes and a varied entertainment program await you. more
NONLINEAR INFREROMETRY IN QUANTUM OPTICS
A nonlinear interferometer is a sequence of two coherent nonlinear optical processes that can enhance or suppress each other. In quantum optics, a nonlinear interferometer is formed by placing in sequence two sources of photon pairs, pumped coherently. As a result, one can achieve a phase sensitivity beating the shot-noise limit, homodyne detection without a local oscillator, and sensing with undetected photons. more

Simulation methods for optical systems
Optical systems can be quite different and also the requirements on the simulation of such systems can differ considerably. So, this lecture can only give an overview about several classical simulation methods for optical systems. There are geometrical optical methods or wave-optical methods, depending on the application. We will shortly discuss the following methods and their limits of application: paraxial geometrical optical methods, ray tracing, scalar wave-optical methods (paraxial or non-paraxial), vectorial Debye integral for calculating the intensity distribution in the focus of an optical system. more

Our partner institute, the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, is currently organizing a Distinguished Lecture Series with many exciting guest speakers. Among them is our MPSP Fellow Christine Silberhorn from Paderborn University. Participation in the lectures is free - all you have to do is register for the MPL newsletter.  more

MPSP Coffee Breaks

The virtual MPSP Coffee Breaks offer the young photonics community a platform for the exchange of current research and for networking. In this event series, Master and PhD candidates present their research projects in about 20-minute talks and then discuss them with the audience. So join in and get to know exciting research topics and other young researchers!

 

Present your research at our MPSP Coffee Breaks!

The MPSP Coffee Breaks offer the young photonics community a platform for the exchange of current research and for networking. If you would like to present your Master or PhD research here and get valuable feedback (as well as a MPSP certificate), please just email us: photonics@maxplanckschools.de
