Infrared optics: micro and nanostructures provide new insights

Interview with Prof. Robert Brunner, Department of SciTec, University of Applied Sciences Jena (Ernst-Abbe-Hochschule Jena)

Medicine uses many different forms of energy that remain hidden from our sight: X-rays, ultrasound, magnetic fields, ultraviolet and infrared light. Infrared radiation, in particular, is very versatile when it is generated and measured with micro and nanostructured optics.
