ARAtronics lab (Applied-Science & Robotics Laboratory for Applied-Mechatronics) at GUC organized a workshop with Prof. Alois Herkommer at Technische Optik (ITO), at Universität Stuttgart, Germany to come to ARAtronics lab to give a lecture and talk about the 3D printing optical sensors.

Prof. Herkommer is one of the renowned experts in his field worldwide and his talk was an excellent opportunity for lab researchers to get to discuss together their most recently demonstrated breakthrough which is the feasibility of micro-optical sensors to work as a solution for bio-medical sensing devices.

ARAtronics Research Laboratory is a unit at the German University in Cairo. The ARAtronics Laboratory exploits the use and the diversity of science (Physics, Chemistry, Neuroscience, Modern Control theory, Robotics, Optics, Material Science, Structural Dynamics, Vibration, Sensing ... etc) to develop feasible solutions for Opto-Mechatronics applications in research and industry. In addition, the labs develop artificial limbs, body parts, and patents for patients of Parkinson's disease and other illnesses alike.

Researchers in the lab recently demonstrated the feasibility of micro-optical sensors as a solution for bio-medical sensing devices.

Personal Information

Alois Herkommer received his Ph.D. in physics in 1995 from the University of Ulm in the area of quantum optics. In 1996 he joined Carl Zeiss in Oberkochen and worked on the optical design of high performance lithographic and metrology systems. From 2000 to 2005 he was with the optical design group at Carl Zeiss Laser Optics GmbH. Afterwards, he headed the illumination design group and later the systems design group at the Carl Zeiss SMT GmbH. In 2011he joined the Institut für Technische Optik at the University of Stuttgart.

His research interests are the optical design of imaging and illumination systems, novel optical systems concepts, optical system analysis and simulation, design and simulation methods, medical applications of optical systems.
