The Nano-Optics Group

Institute of Physics - Karl Franzens University Graz

Group leader Joachim R. Krenn contact

We investigate light on the subwavelength scale (nano-optics), mainly with plasmonic nanostructures, molecules, quantum dots and porous silicon.

Our experimental methods include electron beam lithography, optical (near-field) microscopy, fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy, electron spectroscopy and time-resolved techniques.

Associated to our group is the Erwin Schrödinger Institute for Nanosciences.


    September 24, 2019: Kamon Masato, a student from the Kyoto Institute of Technology joins us for three months. Welcome!
