September 2016 was an extraordinary month at ACP, with plenty of optics and photonics experts seizing the opportunity to get in touch with the latest developments in research and development. At ACP, various events and gatherings with many prominent international guests took place.

The attendees of the summer school at the Carl Zeiss AG.
  • The first international summer school of the DFG International Research Training Group on "Guided Light, Tightly Packed" (GRK 2101) was held at the ACP in Jena. Following the kick-off meeting in Canada in November 2015, this was a great chance for professors and doctoral candidates to present their research projects and latest research developments and discuss them with other scientists. Additional international guest speakers provided a stimulating environment for the exchange of ideas. The program was complemented by company tours and a workshop on exploitation of scientific results in collaboration with Jena's Fraunhofer institute. Apart from the Canadian partners of the GRK, the summer school welcomed as well scientists of the Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP) in China. With this triangluar constellation the meeting aimed to establish a long-term research relationship between the three photonics centers.
