Light for the future
At the Munich-Centre for Advanced Photonics (MAP), researchers of world renown in the field of photonics are sounding out new possibilities for the use of photons. As such, MAP is making a significant contribution to technological advance, as photons, photon and particle sources and application-related technical processes are key components in 21st-century technology. One of MAP’s aims is to achieve greater intensities, greater frequency precision and a greater photonic energy. MAP will enable interdisciplinary processes and experiments involving physics, chemistry, biology and medicine, and create a unique research infrastructure as well as an extensive network for exchanging research findings and for cooperation between all the subjects involved. MAP has been established within the scope of the Excellence Initiative, a Germany-wide competition to promote top-level university research.
