A: Design of Photonic Micro Systems
Due to their size, micro optic systems particularly require an enhanced understanding of the interaction mechanisms between light and matter. At the same time, fluctuating material parameters in smallest dimensions have to be considered. Diffraction effects that are not noticeable in classical systems can lead to completely new phenomena in micro optics. In order to make better use of these effects, simulation models are adapted or newly developed which make it possible to realise more efficient systems for beam forming and delivery in lighting technology or laser processing or to realise high-capacity components for optical data transmission. The findings are then transferred into real systems to verify the models.
