Working Groups

The Working Groups are organized by the Photonics Hub


They typically meet  twice a year on a regular basis. Interesting lectures on special topics are presented and discussed in depth. In many cases the meeting ends with a guided tour of a company or a university institute.

Education and Training

In this working group of the universities, in which also industry representatives are very welcome, cooperations in education are discussed, joint trade fair appearances are planned and study-relevant contents are discussed.

Image Processing

In cooperation with the Automatisierungsregion RheinMainNeckar, application-oriented questions of image processing are discussed.


This working group is organized by Werner Riggers (Laseroptik Garbsen) and was co-founded by PhotonicNet and Optence more than 10 years ago.

LASER technology

All topics related to the LASER are some of the topics discussed in this group.

LED Technology

Together with PhotonicsBW, the working group is a discussion platform and offer for the members of bayern photonics, Optence and PhotonicsBW.

Optics Design and Simulation

This group has been in existence since 2005 and is a joint working group of bayern photonics, optence and PhotonicsBW.
The joint sessions not only deal with topics related to optics design and simulation, but also deliberately look over the edge. So topics like "seeing" or "image processing" were on the agenda of the working group.
