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.
