Personal Photonics

Personal Photonics

This three-year research project aims to create new interaction techniques and user interfaces for photonics components, systems, and tools, to make them easier to use for makers, designers, artists, and other non-engineers, putting the photonics industry on center stage of the Open Innovation movement. This project is funded by the German Ministry of Science and Education (BMBF) through its Open Photonics Initiative. The project was launched on June 1, 2016, and is carried out by members of our lab at RWTH Aachen University, together with the InfoSphere (
