About the Institute

The Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing (IPAS) fosters excellence in research in materials science, chemistry, biology and physics and develops disruptive new tools for measurement.

Many of the challenges we face as a society can only be solved by pursuing a transdisciplinary approach to science.

IPAS has been created to bring together experimental physicists, chemists, material scientists, biologists, experimentally driven theoretical scientists and medical researchers to create new sensing and measurement technologies.

IPAS is built on a strong ongoing partnership with DSTG and their support ofnumerous research projects and positions.
