ENSEMBLE3 is a new Centre of Excellence for nanophotonics, advanced materials and novel crystal growth-based technologies based in Warsaw, Poland, jointly established by institutions from Poland, Germany, Italy and Spain. The centre will work on the development of novel materials technologies and advanced materials with unique electromagnetic properties that could have applications in areas such as photonics, optoelectronics, telecommunications, solar energy conversion, medicine, and aerospace.
We are soliciting applications from scientists to lead the group: Biophotonic Applications. This group will be responsible for extending the applications of the materials developed in the project and at the Centre to biophotonic elements and devices beyond the state of the art in modern photonics and optoelectronics. Several properties and functionalities of the crystal growth materials to be developed at the Centre have already been demonstrated.
These could be further developed into biophotonic applications in addition to the new ideas expected from the group leader and group members. The development of novel ideas for crystal growth-based materials that can function as biophotonic elements and devices, the demonstration of unique optical phenomena, and the potential use of such materials in biological applications, including cancer diagnosis and health improvement, are the main tasks of this group.
