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.
Date: September 11 – 14, 2022
Venue: Volkshaus Jena, Germany
Free of charge (registration is required)
200 International Participants
30 Scientific Talks
While maintaining quality throughput and complexity of research work have steadily increased over the last years. If it comes to experimental setup and lab infrastructure research results have been boosted by applying new combinations of available hard and software technologies. A good example is the use of DMD (Digital Micro mirror Device) as a spatial light modulator in microscopy. These DMDs had already been used for many years in display and astronomy applications. Therefore in this conference we would like to bring together scientists from different disciplines to share their experience on emerging technologies and setups. What is common is the use of Ultrafast lasers in Biophotonics.
The relatively new research area of biophotonics combines life sciences, environmental sciences and medicine with innovative optical technologies. Biophotonics encompasses all optical methods for investigating structural, functional, mechanical, biological and chemical properties of biological materials and systems. Biophotonics opens up great opportunities for basic research, biotechnology and medicine. With the help of biophotonics, it is possible, for example, to better understand the causes of diseases so that they can be prevented in the future or at least diagnosed earlier and more precisely and thus treated more effectively.
In more than 20 scientific lectures by pioneers in their field this conference report on the manifold new possibilities that arise in biophotonics with ultra-short pulse lasers. The spectrum of topics includes 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 as well as wavelengths in the EUV/X-ray range and ultra-short time spectroscopy of biological systems e. g. protein folding dynamics using 2D spectroscopy to name only a few.
We hope to meet you at the conference!
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.
As one of the world’s leading providers of laser-based technologies, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of lasers, laser sub-systems, and laser machines for a broad range of commercial, industrial, and scientific applications. From cutting the strongest steel to investigating a single cell, we enable the success of our customers with products and services that harness and deliver the power of light.
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.

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)
