Science is made by people

Once you‘ve visited a LANE conference, you feel it: This vital international vibe – people united in their passion for photonics!


At LANE 2022, we want to focus on the diverse individuals behind the scientific contributions. We think it is worth to get to know the active people from all over the world that give our photonics community this innovative power. Our #people@LANE concept is realised by two activities:


„Master of Dispersion“ on Tour

In the run-up to the conference, we will send our diversity patron „Master of Dispersion” on a trip around the world to meet LANE participants „at home”. We are really looking forward to receive their personal video messages and to share them on our LinkedIn channel.

People@LANE Lounge

Beyond our social media activities, we want to provide a special area for an intercultural exchange on site. In our people@LANE lounge in Fürth, all participants will be welcome to talk not only about scientific topics, but also about things that are important for their personal (working)life. This might be: New work, digitalisation, diversity, careers, and all the other topics that are of relevance in this challenging times.

And: An enjoyable atmosphere, drinks, sweets and inspiring facts will be offered by us ;-) 

Our #peope@LANE team

For any ideas, problems, wishes, comments on our #people@LANE project or other topics related to diversity, please feel free to get in touch with us anytime.

Get to know our whole „Lichtgestalten“ family

Bringing physical effects to life - this is the challenge the scientists at the Bayerisches Laserzentrum GmbH and the Institute of Photonic Technologies have set themselves. After many fun but also exhausting hours of brainstorming, our first three "Lichtgestalten" were born:
