Nanophotonics Theory & Signal Processing

Quantum and Laser Photonics

In the Quantum and Laser Photonics Group, we work theoretically and experimentally to explore the fundamentals of light-matter interactions in nanostructures.

In-depth information about our activities can be found under Research and Publications. You may also have a look at PhD Projects in our group.

We are engaged in teaching and supervising students at all levels, and you may find information about Courses we teach and Student Projects.

If you are interested in joining the group, have a look at Open Positions and feel free to contact any of our Group Members with questions or comments.
