Kort om utbildningen
The 21st century is the century of the photon and photonics is the science and technology of generating, controlling and detecting photons. Lasers and related technologies are today indispensable in very diverse fields of science, manufacturing and medical applications. Light-emitting diodes replace our traditional lighting and contribute to lower power consumption. Photonic technology, i.e. optical fibers and related photonic devices, is the backbone of global communication and information exchange. The increasing importance of photonics for society is also underlined by the Nobel prizes in 2009, 2014 and 2018.
