... where LIFE SCIENCE

Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology

Photonics, the key light-based technology of the 21st century, is at the center of the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology’s (Leibniz-IPHT) research activities. In line with its motto "Photonics for Life", the scientists at Leibniz-IPHT are investigating photonic and biophotonic processes and systems to address issues in the fields of medicine and the life and environmental sciences. 


From Ideas to Instruments

The insights gained from research are converted into application-oriented procedures, instrumental concepts, and laboratory samples at Leibniz-IPHT. With this orientation, the institute contributes to the solution of pressing issues in our society, such as in health, energy, and the environment.
