The Abbe Center of Photonics (ACP) is the academic center of scientific activities in the fields of optics and photonics at the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität (FSU) Jena. Research is conducted in joint cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute Jena, the Helmholtz Institute Jena and the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology. ACP follows the vision to be one of the leading European centers for research and education in optics and photonics as well as in the development and transfer of optical technologies until 2020. To this end, the ACP fosters and sustains strong links with local industry partners as well as with the international scientific community.

ACP principal scientist Isabelle Staude will be distinguished by the German Physical Society (DPG) with the Hertha Sponer Prize 2017 recognizing her outstanding contributions in in nanophotonics. The Hertha Sponer Prize is awarded annually by the DPG to a scientist for outstanding scientific work in the field of physics. The award is intended to encourage young women scientists in particular through public distinction and thus attract more women to physics, and is endowed with a prize money of 3,000 Euros.

Can molecules take pictures of themselves? That is more or less the principle underlying laser-induced electron diffraction: A laser field strips an electron from a molecule and then sends it back to report on the structure of the remaining ion. ACP princiapl scientist Gräfe and colleagues applied this technique to acetylene to track the cleavage of its C-H bond after double ionization. These breakthrough results were published in the latest edition of Science.
