Abbe Center of Photonics

The Abbe Center of Photonics (ACP) is a center for optics and photonics at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, and represents its key research area LIGHT.
Image_ACP_booklet_2013The 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.

Official launch of the MPSP


Digitalized microscopy (W1/2)

Visit of ERC president to Jena

December 14, 2018
The Abbe School of Photonics is taking the lead in coordinating one of the three prestigious Max Planck Schools, which were implemented by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as national networks of excellence. The Max Planck School of Photonics (MPSP) will focus the key strengths of the German photonics community and will support highly skilled young researchers on a world class level. The School was now officially launched upon a tremendous signing ceremony in Berlin. The next call for applications is projected for January 2019.

A new W1/W2 professorship position is now open at the Institute of Applied Optics and Biophysics. The research area is intended to involve the development of novel data analysis methods for an improved acquisition of microscopy data. Specifically, the experimental setup, optical design and protocol of microscopy experiments shall be optimized using dedicated data analysis approaches, which will especially advance the use of the microscopes for life science research. The focus lies on optical microscopy and photonics, but may also involve other microscopy techniques such as X-ray or electron microscopy.
