Learn about novel trends in 3D sensing and the implementation of these sensors in robotics and advanced imaging systems based on the insect eye principle. This Leibniz Lecture will take place on September 14, 2016, at the German Center for Research and Innovation New York.

Modern cars are able to warn us when we are too close to the car behind us while parking. Driverless transport systems in factories are able to deliver finished goods just in time to be sold. Today, new technologies driven by digitalization and artificial intelligence are changing the way humans interact with machines. In the future, next-generation devices and machines will be more sophisticated, ensuring an even higher degree of collaboration. As a key enabling technology, optics and photonics play a critical role in addressing many of the challenges humans face when interacting with machines. Photonic sensors that measure three-dimensional objects, people, and scenes will empower machines to monitor their environment. Prof. Dr. Andreas Tünnermann will discuss these novel trends on Wednesday, September 14, 2016, at the German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI) New York. He is a 2005 Leibniz Prize Recipient and Professor at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena as well as the Director of the Institute of Applied Physics.

Known for his pioneering work in utilizing high power femtosecond lasers for material processing, Prof. Tünnermann is involved in groundbreaking experiments in fundamental physics, such as the observation of gravitational waves applying laser interferometers and in applied research activities with strong economic and ecological impact. One example is the development of nano lasers for photon managements in highly efficient thin-film solar cells. His work has been documented by more than 500 peer-reviewed publications in renowned international journals, such as Nature Physics, Nature Photonics, Physical Review Letters, Optics Letters, and Applied Optics.
