The Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT) researches the scientific basics of photonic processes and systems of the highest sensitivity, efficiency, and resolution. In keeping with its “Photonics for Life” motto, IPHT develops custom solutions to problems in the fields of medicine and the life and environmental sciences that are based on this research. Following IPHT’s principle “From Ideas to Instruments,” the institute implements the insights gained from research into processes, instrumental concepts, and sometimes even into laboratory prototypes in order to sustainably contribute to the benefit of patients and consumers.
