Tailored Light

Welcome to the homepage of Tailored Light. Tailored Light is a coordinated PhD-program of the Hanover Centre for Optical Technologies from the Leibniz Universität Hannover together with the Hochschule Hannover, the Laser Zentrum Hannover, the HAWK Hildesheim/ Holzminden/ Göttingen, the TU Braunschweig and the TU Clausthal.

The PhD program Tailored Light is funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry for Science and Culture.

Official Final meeting

Be invited to the official final meeting of Tailored Light on March 2nd, 12:30 - 18:00 at the Leibnizhaus in Hannover. A combination of project presentations of the PhD students and posters will give an overview over the results of the 15 projects from 2016 till now.

Please check the invitation (German language) for details and the registration process.

Idea of Tailored Light

Integrating shpere
Measurement of the emission spectrum of a red LED with an integrating sphere

The impressive advance in the development of semiconductor light sources actually effects a far-reaching change in lighting technology. LEDs as light sources significantly increase the energy efficiency of lighting systems. Furthermore semiconductor light sources allow the precise definition of the local, temporal and spectral characteristics of the emitted light. In combination with optical structures, elements as actors on the micro- and nanoscale the separation between geometrical optics and wave optics dissipates. Diffractive optical elements, micro arrays and light sources with structures on the nanoscale are building blocks for completely new solutions.

The task of Tailored Light is to make use of the great potential of these technologies regarding the spatial, temporal and spectral adaption and manipulation of light and to make it accessible for many different applications.
