The research activities of the nanostructure optoelectronics group are focused on the physics and technology of semiconductor nanostructures and on the development and application of advanced optical analytics.
Our work on semiconductor nanostructures is concentrated on the preparation and investigation of single quantum systems, their controlled manipulation and functionalization on the level of single electrons, excitons, photons or spins. This research field falls into the area of solid-state based quantum information technology, in which the coherent control of single quantum systems is of fundamental importance.
In the field of optical analytics we are focused on fs-nonlinear confocal microscopy and Raman imaging. Applied to semiconductors, periodically poled ferroelectrics, and chemical reactions in micro-channels, those methods provide sub-µm spatial resolution and contrast mechanisms, which are inaccessible by linear optical microscopy.
