Goodbye Nabarun!

innoFSPEC member Nabarun Polley is moving to Kolkata, starting a position as assistant professor in biomedical engineering at Adamas University, India. We will miss him and wish him all the best for his new research project. You're always welcome to visit!


NanoPAT General Assembly

After two years of project time under Covid-19 restrictions, the NanoPAT consortium was able to finally meet in person at the month 24 general assembly, hostet by innoFSPEC in Potsdam. It was a fantastic meeting, with informative presentations of the progress in the different tasks and very active discussions between the different partners! Find more details about the meeting here.

We are all looking forward to the Scientific Detector Workshop 2022 taking place from September 4th to 9th 2022 in Potsdam, Germany! innoFSPEC members Dr. Kalaga Madhav and Prof. Martin Roth are chairing the organisational committee of this workshop together with Paola Amico from the European Southern Observatory. Highly renowned researchers will give their presentations as invited speakers. Find more information on the event website.


Visit at Covestro in the Netherlands

The work on the implementation of the PDW technology at our industrial NanoPAT partners continues. On May 24th, innoFSPEC team Katlen, Sebastian, Marvin and Anika went to Covestro in Waalwijk (Netherlands) where they had a look at the R&D labs as well as the pilot and production plants. Together with their colleagues from Covestro, they planned the technical implementation of PDW technology at Covestro’s R&D facilities to explore the full potential of PDW spectroscopy as a potential new PAT in the polymer production process.
