Oskar Painter is a pioneer in the development and physical characterisation of optical nanosystems. His main research focus is the study of quantum mechanical characteristics of mechanical solid state structures and their interaction with light. Applications of his research include the development of quantum-limited high-precision sensors and the realisation of integrated networks for quantum optical communication.
