2nd European Symposium on Ultrafast Laser driven Biophotonics

The European Symposium on Ultrafast Laser driven Biophotonics (ESULaB) provides a platform for scientific exchange between physicists, chemists, engineers, materials scientists, biologists, biomedical scientists and industry representatives. It will launch this September in Jena, Germany. Participants will be informed about current trends and perspectives and will receive impulses for their own research.

Discussed will be the latest developments and trends in the field of spectroscopy and imaging using ultra-short pulse laser concepts to answer biophotonic question. The spectrum of topics includes among others non-linear imaging (e.g. SHG/THG microscopy, coherent Raman microscopy) for biomedical diagnostics, imaging of biological objects with highest spatial resolution by exploiting non-linear phenomena (e.g. STED microscopy) as well as wavelengths in the EUV/X-ray range and ultrafast time-resolved spectroscopy of biological systems e.g. protein folding dynamics using 2D spectroscopy. At the same time, the bridge to translation into application and marketing, e.g. in the field of new diagnostic and biomedical approaches, will be built.

In more than 20 scientific lectures by pioneers in the field of non-linear biophotonics, successful research initiatives will be presented and opportunities will be offered to exchange views on trends and future research questions. In the attached industry forum there will be the chance for interaction between representatives of industry and science. Users will be presented with the latest technical innovations in the fields of infrared, Raman and terahertz spectroscopy as well as X-ray and EUV microscopy.

Leibniz IPHT

At the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena, scientists use light to find solutions to questions and urgent problems in the fields of health, environment, medicine and safety. Under the motto “Photonics for Life”, they research light-based technologies that make our lives safer, healthier and cleaner. Especially in the field of optical health technologies, Leibniz IPHT, in cooperation with partners from research and industry, is specifically promoting translation: the transfer of research results into applicable solutions – from Ideas to Instruments.

Volkshaus Jena

With a more than 100-year history and the lovingly preserved original architecture with Art Nouveau elements of the People’s House Jena the historic building fascinates all visitors. The range of numerous events ranging from concerts of the Jena Philharmonic, to readings of the Ernst Abbe Library Jena to comedy and concerts by renowned artists. modern rooms are full of services and an impressive ambience available for meetings, conventions and trade shows. In a stylish environment, the People’s House to a demanding concert, gala and conference venue has developed far beyond Jena also enjoys an appreciation.

  • Starting from Leipzig/Halle (LEJ) you can reach Jena via train station “Jena Paradies” (public transport: approx. 2 h).
    Or by car on the A9 motorway to the south (direction Munich) up to the Hermsdorfer Kreuz. Here you have to change the motorway, follow the A4 motorway westward (direction Frankfurt) and leave it at the exit Jena-Zentrum, further see car.
  • Starting from airport Munich (MUC) you can reach Jena with ICE train with a change at Nürnberg (Hauptbahnhof, main stration) or at Erfurt (Hauptbahnhof, main station). Further see bus/train. (public transport: approx. 4 h)
  • Starting from airport Berlin (TXL, SHX) or airport Frankfurt (FRA) you can reach Jena with ICE train with a change at Erfurt (Hauptbahnhof, main station). Further see bus/train. (public transport: approx. 3,5 h)
  • Or starting from airport Erfurt (ERF) you reach Jena by train at station “Jena West” (public transport: approx. 1,5 h).
    Or by car on the A4 motorway direction Dresden to exit Jena-Zentrum, further see car.

By Car

Leave the A4 motorway at the exit Jena-Zentrum. From there, take the expressway (Stadtrodaer Straße, federal street B88) towards the center. At the end of the road you will pass under a railway bridge – there turn left onto Knebelstraße and straight on until you reach a rotary. Take the first exit, Ernst-Haeckel-Straße and drive straight on at the next traffic light crossing. Shortly after follows another traffic light crossing that you will take straight ahead. After about 150 m there is an access road to a hotel on the right side – the Volkshaus Jena is located directly opposite the hotel. 

Close to the Volkshaus there are several parking facilities. All parking spaces are subject to charges.

Large parking area: 
• Eichplatz (navigation: Eichplatz, 07743 Jena)

Underground car parks e.g.:
• Neue Mitte Jena (navigation: Leutragraben 1, 07743 Jena)
• Goethe Galerie (closes at 11 pm; navigation: Ernst-Abbe-Strasse 15, 07743 Jena)

By bus / train

  • If you take the route from west to east (e.g., from Erfurt), leave the train at “Jena West”. Leave the train station on the side of the train station building. Go left down the street. On the right side you will see the bus stop “Westbahnhofstraße”. You can enter every bus with direction “Stadtzentrum”. Leave the bus at “Stadtzentrum”. Change the side of the street and follow the tram tracks to the left. Go over the traffic light crossing and through the underpass next to the tracks. Continue to follow the tracks until they end. Then go through another underpass and turn left afterwards. Walk down the street and you will soon see the hotel “Steigenberger” on the left. Directly opposite of the hotel, across the street, you can see Volkshaus Jena.
  • If you take the route from north to south (e.g., from Nürnberg) you will arrive at the station “Jena Paradies”. Then go to the tram station “Jena Paradies” right next to the train station and take tram number 5 (direction Ernst-Abbe-Platz). Step off the tram at Ernst-Abbe-Platz and turn right. Walk through the underpass and turn left afterwards. Walk down the street and you will soon see the hotel “Steigenberger” on the left. Directly opposite of the hotel, across the street, you can see Volkshaus Jena. From the train station to the Volkshaus you can also walk in about 15 minutes.
