The Lichtwerkstatt is Germany's first photonics makerspace, where citizens, researchers and companies with an interest in optics and photonics have free access to modern technical equipment (including AR/VR, 3D scanning, 3D printing, laser cutting, microelectronics) and the necessary know-how to realize their own ideas. In addition to representatives from companies and academia, many dedicated master's students from the fields of physics, photonics, IT sciences and media management are the main users of the makerspace.
Thanks to our enthusiastic makerspace community, the Lichtwerkstatt has become a lively space for creative work, knowledge exchange, prototyping and joint experimentation. The Lichtwerkstatt provides all students and graduate students with ongoing access to rapid prototyping technologies, individual mentoring, exciting workshops and projects. In addition, the makerspace team promotes the exchange with the industry through open innovation formats such as hackathons or innovation camps.
