Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics

Every other year for two days, the Karlsruhe Days of Optics & Photonics brings together leading experts of O&P to the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). During the conference, each of the five research areas of KSOP is highlighted by plenary lectures. As one lecture was given by a KSOP Principal Investigator, the other one were held by an invited expert in the respective field.


In addition, all KSOP doctoral researchers present their research in a poster session. This turns KDOP into an efficient format to initiate collaboration with national as well as international partners from industry and academia. With an average of 250 participants, we are proud to provide a renowned forum in the O&P world.
