The International Research Training Group "Guided light, tightly packed: novel concepts, components and applications" is a DFG funded research program driven by a transatlantic network of one German and three Canadian partners. The GRK 2101 is ultimately research oriented and its research program focuses on optical waveguides and related technologies to confine and control light in ultra-compact devices, which will allow generating, manipulating, and sensing light with unmatched precision and efficiency. The heart of the GRK 2101 is the training of the most talented young researchers. Read more...
The GRK 2101 is coordinated by the Abbe School of Photonics (ASP).
