The research activities of the nanostructure optoelectronics group are focused on the physics of semiconductor quantum structures and on the development and application of advanced optical analytics.
Our research in the field of semiconductor quantum structures is concentrated on the coherent and nonlinear physics of single quantum systems. By the application of novel concepts based on picosecond optical and electrical control we contribute to the development of a future solid-state based quantum information technology, which requires functionalities on the level of single electrons, excitons or photons.
In the field of optical analytics we are focused on fs-nonlinear confocal microscopy and Raman imaging. Applied to semiconductor structures and periodically poled ferroelectrics, those non-invasive methods provide sub-µm spatial resolution and contrast mechanisms, which are inaccessible by linear optical microscopy.
