Research Groups

Prof. C. Ropers, Dr. M. Sivis
spitze 1) Electronic and structural dynamics in condensed matter studied by ultrafast electron microscopy and diffraction.
2) Observation and control of highly nonlinear optical phenomena in nanostructures. more...

Prof. A. Rizzi and Dr. J. Malindretos
NanodrahtThe know-how in our group and the facilities at our disposal allow for the preparation and characterization of state-of-the-art GaN-based material, heterostructures and nanostructures by molecular beam epitaxy (mBe) through both top-down and bottom-up approaches. At present our research activities focus on magnetic epitaxial layers, quantum well structures also for energy conversion and sensor applications, and nanowires. more...
