Abbe Center of Photonics opens

07/22/2016 - In Jena, optics and photonics have been like peas in a pod. The latest chapter in this story of partnership, enabling researchers from different disciplines to work together on new technologies, was the opening on July 5 of the state-of-the-art Abbe Center of Photonics on the Beutenberg Campus of Friedrich Schiller University .

"The opening of this new building will further improve facilities for interdisciplinary research on photonic technologies in Jena", says the President of the university, Professor Walter Rosenthal. Construction took less than three years. The building cost Euro 26.1 million and provides 2,500 m² of space for offices and laboratories specifically for optical, chemical and biological research, as well as seminar rooms and an auditorium. The Abbe Center itself was established in 2010 and now has 46 scientists in working groups for various disciplines including new laser technologies that can be used to visualize cells or other microparticles. In the new building, they will be able to work side by side instead of occupying different buildings in various parts of the city of Jena.
