Join the Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics 2015

KDOP 2015

For ten years KSOP has been organizing the two-day symposium Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics (KDOP). Within the scope of the International Year of Light, we were especially proud of presenting both interesting speeches on brand new research results in the wide field of Optics and Photonics and creating a platform for an international network with representatives of academia and industry.

During the conference, our five research areas were highlighted by our lecturers while our KSOP doctoral researchers showcased their research results in a detailed poster session and shared with the audience their view into the future of O&P.

The Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics took place on November 24 -25, 2015.
