Light Technology Institute

The efficient generation of light, the physiological effects, and general lighting optimized with regard to ergonomic, and economic aspects, have been the primary focus of LTI research for many decades. The objective of generating light efficiently and utilizing it profitably is still a top priority. Many aspects of photonics are closely networked at LTI: from optical communications technology and optical biotechnology to applications in industrial UV technology and automotive lighting and display technology, including projects involving inorganic and organic light-emitting diodes.

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.
