The Center for Nano- and Biophotonics (NB-Photonics) is the one-stop-shop for photonics technology at Ghent University. We provide services to academia and industry, provide training and engage in multidisciplinary collaborations. Our society is faced with important challenges such as affordable and personalized healthcare, clean and renewable energy, and efficient ICT. Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) within photonics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology have the potential to help provide solutions. The intricate nature of the challenges at hand necessitates a multidisciplinary approach. NB-Photonics solves such challenges and provides training through our members’ expertise and their facilities in combination with academic and industrial partners.
