ACP_building_web300The Abbe Center of Photonics (ACP) is the academic center of scientific activities in the fields of optics and photonics at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Research is conducted in joint cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute Jena, the Helmholtz Institute Jena and the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology. In the last years, ACP has become 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. ACP is strongly engaged in young-career scientists' education via its integrated Abbe School of Photonics and sustains strong links with local industry partners as well as with the international scientific community.

Supported by the Thüringer Aufbaubank, the new research group FastPhoton has commenced its work on January 1, 2020. The project, led by ACP principal scientists Tünnermann and Eilenberger, is located at the Thuringian innovation center InQuoSens, where researchers from both Thuringian universities develop electronic and nanophotonic solutions for quantum light sources - because these are exactly what the new encryption systems need. As part of the research group, the scientists want to focus particularly on the development, improvement and integration of suitable single photon sources that produce the necessary photons with precisely defined quantum states.
