DTU Fotonik

DTU Fotoniks research aims to cover areas within engineering, ranging from optical materials, lasers, industrial sensors and components to telecommunications and IT. This unique approach enables researchers to build a bridge from the development of new materials over the construction of advanced telecommunications equipment to research into new modern communication technology applications.

DTU Fotoniks objective is to constantly improve and develop its ability to connect state-of-the-art knowledge between DTU Fotoniks five competence areas, through exciting and challenging research projects. In this way DTU Fotonik can stay an internationally leading research center within telecommunications. At the same time competences in related research areas can be developed, leading to the utilization of the knowledge within optical fibers, advanced systems, network architecture or coding, into biomedical optics, sensor systems, laser systems for industrial use and many other new applications.

A close dialogue with industry and the involvement of young talented researchers are important factors in the continuing development of research at DTU Fotonik. This not only stimulates the interdisciplinary collaboration between the research areas at DTU Fotonik, but also strongly adjoins education, research and innovation.

Round Robin Experiment

Raman spectroscopy has already proved its effectiveness in many cases for medical diagnostics such as for cancer, cardiovascular diseases and infections. However, there are no standards in the different working groups, e.g. for sample preparation, implementation of the Raman experiments, spectra pre-treatment, data evaluation, etc.In a round robin experiment, the required groundwork will take place in order to define standardised Raman measurement methods, which will be fundamental for establishing Raman spectroscopy for clinical diagnostic procedures.
