Job Title
Professorship on Semiconductor Nanostructures and Quantum Systems
Additional Info
Leading the Nanostructure Spectroscopy Group at Walter Schottky Institut of TUM: focus on understanding, manipulating and exploiting electronic, spin and photonic quantum phenomena in semiconductors and nanostructured electronic and photonic materials. Major research interests include: optical, electronic and spintronic properties of semiconductor quantum dots and wires fabricated from Aimonides, group-IV materials (Si, SiGe, C) and II-VI semiconductors and oxides (CdSe, ZnO). Another major arm of our research concerns quantum optical studies of dielectric and metallic nano-photonic materials and the application of such systems for applications in quantum information processing, metrology and sensing.

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?


Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
