Photonics

A PhD or Doctor of Philosophy is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by universities. Once one attains a PhD he or she may often be referred to as a doctor.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.

PhD Degrees in Photonics in Europe 2017. Introduction The program of Doctorate in Laser, Photonics and Vision Is an Interuniversity program that is offered jointly with the Universities of Santiago de Compostela and Vigo. It is designed for advanced training in the field of Laser technologies, Photonics and Vision techniques. Its final objective is to provide a training of scientific excellence to future researchers and professionals in this field, thus responding to the growing demand for training for its integration into the national and international R & D & I system. Why study the degree In socio-political terms, the scientific-technical sector of science and optical and photonic technology is of extreme importance for the great challenges of the 21st century. The European Union has identified Photonics as one of six key enabling technologies (KET), whose development will determine the competitiveness, productivity and sustainability of European industry's long-term employment. Investment in these technologies will be given priority attention in EU R & D & I policies, not only because of their impact on the Union's industrial and innovation capacity, but also because of their effect on social challenges such as Efficiency and independence of energy, health and health care or transportation, among others. The program groups the human and material resources of the different research groups related to the areas of Laser, Photonics and Vision. All of them have extensive experience in the academic and research field, reflected in the direction and realization of numerous scientific projects, publications and doctoral theses.... [-]

Needs for Novel Doctoral Training Strategies

The scientific, technological and economic importance of optics and photonics contrasts with its minor role in the German university system. The curricula of the traditional disciplines do not provide a profound optics and photonics education. Thus, the initial stages of diploma or doctoral theses have to serve as “training-on-the-job”, addressing only special aspects rather than the entire field of optics and photonics.

The leading graduate schools that specifically focus on optics and photonics are mainly located in the U.S. (e.g., CREOL, Orlando, Florida; Rochester, New York; Tucson, Arizona) and have developed into world renowned centers for science and technology. Importantly, the optics and photonics research at these institutions is complemented by corresponding undergraduate and graduate education programs. In this respect there is need of a new educational approach in Germany. Hence, we have developed and implemented both M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in the area of “Optics & Photonics”. The M.Sc. course provides an adequate education, spanning the bridge between undergraduate optics classes and the required in-depth knowledge that is essential for cutting-edge research. The best students enter the Ph.D. program and find the ideal ground for world-class research. Their thesis work benefits from the multidisciplinary character of the “Karlsruhe School of Optics & Photonics (KSOP)”.... [-]
