Welcome to the KSOP - Karlsruhe School of Optics & Photonics

Multidisciplinary Environment for First-Class Research, Education, and Innovation.

The terms Optics & Photonics are derived from the Greek optikós, referring to vision and photon which means light. Hence, the areas of Optics & Photonics cover the research relating to light including its use in many modern industries.

The Karlsruhe School of Optics & Photonics (KSOP) offers English language Master and Doctorate Programs in Optics & Photonics.
