Optics Meet-Up @ KOMBINAT 01
19:00 – 22:00
Inputs · Talks · Networking
A strong expertise in the design and manufacturing of high-end optical components – that’s what Jena region is famous for.
Please feel kindly invited to the 4th edition of a unique gathering of leading scientists and developers, who openly discuss future challenges in photonics system design. This time we look forward to exciting lectures on the potential of nanocomposites as materials for optical systems, challenges in the design and conception of metalenses and on deformable phase plate, DPP – a new technology for adaptive optics.
We are happy to welcome you in the Kombinat 01 / Westbahnhofstr. 13.

#1 Nanocomposites as next generation optical materials
Dr. Daniel Werdehausen, Head of Visualization & HMI // ZEISS Corporate Research & Technology
Nanostructured optical materials have long been investigated for their potential to enable a new generation of imaging systems. However, despite decades of research in fields such as metamaterials, metalenses, and nanocomposites such materials have not yet been able to make the transition from research into commercial imaging products. In this talk, it will be discussed how nanocomposites can become suitable bulk optical materials for real-world imaging systems and it will be shown that nanocomposites enable the design of dispersion-engineering materials and could hence become one building block of next-generation imaging systems. Specifically, it will be discussed how such materials can enable “flat optics” that are suitable for broadband imaging systems.
#2 How to design a metalens?
Dominik Schulz // PPE Photonics Precision Engineering
Meta-structures are a novel class of optical devices that can manipulate light with unprecedented precision and control. However, the design and fabrication of meta-structures can be challenging, particularly for less parameter-sensitive lenses. This talk will provide a guide to the design of more robust meta-structures, including strategies in the optimization process for minimizing sensitivity to sources of error. Specific design considerations and techniques, as well as future directions for applicability in this rapidly evolving field will be discussed.
#3 Deformable Phase Plate – a new technology for plug-and-play adaptive optics
Dr. Pouya Rajaeipour, CTO & co-founder // Phaseform GmbH
Deformable Phase Plate (DPP) is the refractive counterpart of deformable mirrors capable of compensating high-order optical aberrations. Similar to a lens mounted in a conventional cage, DPP can be plugged-in to optical setups providing an easy-to-integrate Adaptive Optics solution.
#4 Demonstration performed by Phaseform GmbH
In the room »Lichtenhain« Phaseform GmbH will showcase the Zemax model and present its functionality. You will see the workflow of using it, discuss what problems can be solved when using it and doing an example. In the second part you have the chance to see a demo setup for showing a DPP in action.
