Due to their outstanding ability to manipulate the light, integrated optics and optical fibre based components will continue to have a central role in future design of ground- and space-based instruments for astronomy. Research in the emerging field of Astrophotonics – in which innoFSPEC is one of the world pioneers – promises to offer solutions to many practical problems, in particular to address the huge challenges in connection with building large diameter telescopes. Nowadays, Astrophotonic developments include - amongst other - fibre based optical frequency combs for calibration in spectroscopy, fibre Bragg gratings used to filter out atmospheric emission lines, and integrated optic devices. The Colloquium will give a short overview of the above aspects by means of three short thematic seminars (15 min. each).
