Personal profile

Research areas

Prof. Dr. Jesper Glückstad established the Programmable Phase Optics in Denmark two decades ago and is currently Full Professor & Head of SDU Centre for Photonics Engineering, Univ. Southern Denmark. From April 2020 appointed Guest Professor at Nagoya University, Japan. Prior to that he has been Professor at the Dept. of Photonics Engineeering at the Technical Univ. of Denmark, and held a position as 5-year period Guest Professor in Biophotonics at Lund Institute of Technology, Sweden. In 2004 he received the prestigious Doctor of Science (DSc) degree from the Technical University of Denmark for the dissertation entitled “The Generalised Phase Contrast method”. Together with a colleague he has authored a 300+ pages Springer book on GPC. Prior to his achievements in Denmark, he was a visiting scientist at Hamamatsu Photonics Central Research Laboratories and in the Physics Dept. at Osaka University in Japan. Since he obtained his PhD at the Niels Bohr Institute in 1994, he has published more than 300 journal articles and international conference papers and holds over 30 international patent families. He has published papers in Nature Materials, Nature Methods and Nature Photonics. He is the year 2000 recipient of the Danish Optical Society Award and was elected as «Scientist of the Year» in 2005 by Dir. Ib Henriksen’s Foundation in Denmark. Prof. Glückstad is a 2010 elected Fellow of the OSA and a Fellow of the SPIE as the first ever from Denmark. In 2012-2014 he was appointed for the prestigious SPIE Fellows committee together with an American physics Nobel laurate. On the Editorial Board of the European Optical Society journal JEOS since 2013 and was invited to be plenary speaker at the world renowned IEEE NANO 2016. Recently, edited a 480 pages Elsevier book on Light Robotics - the first volume on this new topic. Has co-founded the start-up OptoRobotix ApS originally spun out in Silicon Valley in California, i.e. which includes tech-transfer GPC Photonics.
