GUEST PROFESSORS

ACP runs an extensive guest professor program which besides its research focus emphasizes involvement of world-class international researchers and scholars as guest professors in the education program of the Abbe School of Photonics. These visitors from all over the world are invited to join the ACP scientists for several weeks in challenging research collaborations and teaching activities in the Master's degree and doctoral programs. Further, ACP guest professors regularly offer valuable feedback based on their personal perspectives.
