Institute for Photonic Integration
The TU/e Institute for Photonic Integration (IPI) was established on April 25th 2016. It integrates all research areas crucial to photonics - materials and devices, components, circuits, systems - and cooperates with initiatives that bring photonic research results to a higher Technology Readiness Level.
From research to industry
The Institute for Photonic Integration is a leading R&D center in the field of photonics. The work of the institute ranges from fundamental scientific research to the development of prototypes that are taken on to the product stage by industry.
The Institute for Photonic Integration continues the research of the TU/e research school COBRA, and therefore possesses an extensive staff of researchers along with a large cleanroom (800 m2) optimized for photonics R&D. The research school has been one of the world’s leading proponents of photonics research for many years. Furthermore, there is intensive collaboration on photonics with the research groups of the University of Twente and Delft University of Technology.Read more
Prof. Erwin Kessels received a Visiting International Professorship (VIP) fellowship from the Ruhr Universität Bochum (RUB)
September 12, 2019
Furthermore he was appointed as Mercator fellow, an initiative of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). In this position he will be involved in both education and research of several research groups involved in Plasma Physics and Atomic Layer Deposition starting from October 2019 and for a period of at least one year.
Prof. Bert Koopmans has been elected as a Distinguished Lecturer by the IEEE Magnetics Society for 2020
September 12, 2019
In this context he is going to present his Lecture entitled 'Femto-magnetism meets spintronics: Towards integrated magneto-photonics' all over the world, to promote both the IEEE organisation, as well as the research performed in his group at the TU/e department of Applied Physics and the Institute for Photonic Integration.

The mission of the Institute for Photonic Integration is to be an internationally leading research center for integrated photonics. We want to develop scientific knowledge and technology that can help industry get new photonic products to market.
The institute wants to respond to societal requirements such as the constant increase in data consumption, offer new solutions to societal problems like medical care and contribute to innovation and economic activity in the Netherlands and Europe.
The Institute for Photonic Integration works on the basis of open innovation, with a view to optimizing the progress of the technology. To this end, we are explicitly looking for collaborations with other institutions and industry.
PhotonDelta Fast Career Track program
During the past 30 years the explosive growth of the internet has radically altered our lives. Photonics, the technology that uses light to transmit information, has played a key role in this revolution. The next years will see even more radical changes in areas such as communications, healthcare, agro-food, energy supply and mobility. The market is growing fast and thousands of jobs will be created. TU/e is the place to start a career in this field.
Do you want to be part of this future?
Then you should consider the new PhotonDelta Fast Career Track program. This program involves TU/e Master students in Applied Physics or Electrical Engineering in photonics research and applications from the start. You will participate to exciting research projects, define new photonic-based solutions to industrial problems, network with peers and professionals, and get first-hand contact with companies hiring in this field.
