Safety always comes first and fires cannot be ruled out even in our laboratories. So we took advantage of the nice weather and conducted a fire safety drill again after a long time. This includes not only knowing how to behave in an emergency, but also how to use the fire extinguishers. Many thanks to Mr. Hohrath from Department 5 for the professional instruction.
Material dispersion accumulated in optical setups tends to heavily distort and chirp ultra-short laser pulses which can be especially disadvantageous in nonlinear optical applications or pump-probe experiments. In our recent publication ‘Compact metasurface-based optical pulse-shaping device’ published in Nano Letters, we show that multiple metasurfaces on a single glass substrate can be used, to alter the dispersion of ultra-short laser pulses…
Our paper 'Multichannel vectorial holographic display and encryption' is selected as the ESI Top Paper in January 2023 in the Journal Light: Science&Applications (LSA) by SpringerNature. We are pleased that the paper makes an important contribution to new multiplexing methods in holography.
Physicist Prof. Dr. Lingling Huang has received the prestigious Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. She was nominated by the Paderborn physicist Prof. Dr. Thomas Zentgraf.
Congratulations to Dr. Jinlong Lu. After a successful disputation of his thesis on Topological Photonics with Metamaterials, Mr. Lu will leave us. We wish him every success in his further life and career.
Congratulations to Dr. Bernhard Reineke-Matsudo. After a successful disputation of his thesis on nonlinear holography with Metamaterials, Mr. Reineke-Matsudo will proceed as Postdoc at the Institute for Photonic Quantum Systems at Paderborn University. We are looking forward for a fruitful collaboration with him.
The presidium of Paderborn University has announced his decision to appoint the physicist and acting speaker of the Center for Optoelectronics & Photonics Paderborn (CeOPP), Prof. Dr. Thomas Zentgraf, as scientific advisory board member for the L-LAB. The L-LAB (www.l-lab.de) is a non-university research institute for lighting technology and mechatronics supported by the Paderborn University, Hamm-Lippstadt University of Applied Sciences and…
