Max Planck School of Photonics (MPSP)
The MPSP offers a program structured in two phases. Within the first phase, we call it the study phase, candidates obtain a photonics master’s degree from one of three teaching universities in Erlangen, Jena or Karlsruhe.
Offered study program:
- M.Sc. Advanced Optical Technologies – MAOT program in Erlangen-Nuremberg
- M.Sc. Photonics – ASP program in Jena
- M.Sc. Optics and Photonics – KSOP program in Karlsruhe
For Research Phase, the PhD topics are offered in different research fields:
– Advanced Imaging – Attosecond Physics – Biophotonics – Fiber Optics – Laser Source Development – Nanophotonics – Nanoscopy – Optical Design – Optical Communication – Quantum Optics – Strongfield Physics – Ultrafast Imaging – X-ray Science
Qualifications / Application
