Optical quantum technologies will shape the 21st century and have a profound impact on technological and economic developments worldwide. They are used in quantum communication, but also in quantum metrology and quantum computing. In Erlangen, the Department of Physics at FAU and the Max Planck ...

Philip Russell is an emeritus founding Director at the Max-Planck Institute for the Science of Light and was formerly Krupp Professor of Experimental Physics at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). He obtained his doctorate at the University of Oxford in 1979, and has worked ...

Maria Chekhova obtained her PhD at the Lomonosov University Moscow in 1989, for a work on polariton spectroscopy, and stayed there as a researcher and a group leader. Her habilitation thesis in 2004 dealt with the polarization and spectral properties of two-photon light. From 1997 to 2009, she worke...

Joachim von Zanthier leads the group Quantum Optics and Quantum Information at the Physics Department of FAU. His group investigates multi-photon states, fragile states of light which carry additional information about the emitting sample. Multi-photon interferences can be used, for example, to imag...

Hanieh Fattahi received her PhD in Physics at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. After graduation in 2016, she received the Minerva fast-track scholarship of the Max Planck Society, which allowed her to establish a research group within the chair of Prof. Ferenc Krausz at Max Planck Institute o...

In his latest publication, Florian Kordon presents a “Multi-Stage Platform for (Semi-)Automatic Planning in Reconstructive Orthopedic Surgery”. He developed a deep-learning algorithm for anatomical feature detection, which enables precise pre- and intra-operative surgery planning based on 2D X-ray i...

For her latest publication “Tailoring the Nature of Interface States in Efficient and Stable Bilayer Organic Solar Cells by a Transfer-Printing Technique”, Rong Wang developed a novel fabrication method, which enables solar cells containing two layers with a sharply defined planar interface. By regu...

Congratulations to former SAOT Young Researcher Award Winner Professor Darko Zibar from Technical University of Denmark, DTU, for being awarded with the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel International Research Award of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. His award goes along with €45,000 and an invitation...

Spray flame synthesis is a powerful tool for the generation of functionalized nanoparticles, yet sophisticated measurement techniques are required to investigate droplet evolution and nanoparticle formation in such a complex process. In his recent publication, “In Situ Determination of Droplet and N...
