About SDU Centre for Photonics Engineering

The strategic vision of the centre is to explore key expertise on spatial and temporal shaping of light in 2D, 3D and 4D – so-called light sculpting - with a range of applications in optics and photonics engineering. Prof. Glückstad is the inventor of Generalized Phase Contrast (GPC) and its extended modalities mGPC, TF-GPC and Holo-GPC that have found a plurality of applications in optical manipulation, biophotonics including neuro- and nano-biophotonics, advanced beam shaping and excitation in space and time, optical phase security, optical parallel processing, wavefront control and phase sensing. The new field of light-driven micro- and nano-robotics – coined light robotics – has been pioneered, too.
