We were watching the solar eclipse in the United States together with the lab. Here are some pictures of me using one of the most important tools in an optics lab to visualize the sun – an ND filter.
The OSA Student Chapter screened the documentary “That’s the story”. It features an interview with the nobel laureate Prof. Roy J. Glauber, who is the last living scientist from the theory division of the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos. I led the subsequent panel discussion with José Ignacio Latorre from […]
I made a presentation for high school students today about super-resolution microscopy. It was a school outreach activity of our OSA Student Chapter. Here are some pictures.
The OSA Student Chapter was part of the Blue Night in Nuernberg this year. We displayed optics experiments to the public and gave short presentations about topics like Plasmonics. We also made an installation where we dyed the water of a fountain with fluorescein and illuminated it with UV light. […]

The “Lightstage” of the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light was in the Erlangen city center today. We showed optics experiments to the public and I gave a short presentation about Plasmonics. Here are some impressions.
For the Long Night of Science in Erlangen, I have prepared an experiment where light is being bend by propagating inside a gradient refractive index media. Here is the recipe: 1. Prepare saturated sugar solution: Dissolve 6 kg of sugar in 3 l of water => Will produce more than […]
