Maintain your posture!

Dear Sir or Madam,

Work can make you sick - even if it is fun. Especially people with physically demanding occupations know this problem. An incorrect posture can have serious health consequences over the years. The project SIRKA has therefore commited itself to the early detection of harmful postures at work. The beginning is made by the shipbuilders. Read more in the interview.

In addition, we have taken a closer look on the topic of photonics. Will small microrobots wander through our bodies to collect information soon? Learn more in the current special May Photonics - lasers and beams improve diagnostics.

Have a nice day!

Infrared optics: micro and nanostructures provide new insights

Infrared radiation, in particular, is very versatile when it is generated and measured with micro and nanostructured optics. In this interview Prof. Robert Brunner talks about the newly established research team "MIRO", the properties of micro and nanostructured optics and where they can be used apart from medicine.
