Project area B: Optical and electronic properties

In this research area the main goal is to use the potential of optical control of nanosystems. An unprecedented level of control was achieved experimentally by two-color excitations of molecules and theoretically of spin-qubit candidates. Further major progress concerned stability of colloidal quantum dots, their control on ultrafast time scales and in magnetic fields as well as direct detection of the photonic vacuum. In future, this area will expand to an ultrafast control of the coupling between a tunnel current and photons.
