Clinical Photonics Lab (CPL)

Clinical Photonics Lab (CPL)

The main scope of Clinical Photonics Lab (CPL) is research at the cutting edge of Advanced Optical Technologies (AOT) in biology and medicine - sampling and treatment of live tissues and cells by light.

The mission of the Lab is to foster collaboration between diverse groups of researchers building partnerships between physicians, basic scientists as well as industrial and academic investigators.

The CPL research directions comprise both application and fundamental approaches towards resolving the current medical demands in treatment and diagnostics.


A regular lecture and seminar-practicum course of Biophotonics, Laser Tissue Interaction and Photonics in Medical Engineering have been established in CPL together with Institute of Photonic Technologies for students of Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU), Max Planck Research Group and FAU University Clinics. 

CPL invites internationally recognized experts to perform lectures and seminars on the SAOT site. The work language in the lab is English and international PhD and Master students are welcome to apply and join us.

A close cooperation with the Departments and Clinics of FAU, international research groups, local and international industry is being actively developed.

Clinical Photonics Lab was established on February 28th, 2008 as a part of Graduate School in Advanced Optical Technologies (SAOT) at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen, Bavaria, Germany.
