Materials and Light-Matter Interaction

Naturwissenschaftliche Fakultät


This research focus includes the synthesis of new molecules and materials and the exploration of quantum processes in light and matter. On the materials side, this involves the targeted synthesis, fabrication and study of novel materials and devices, with emphasis on novel chemical, electronic and optical functionalities. On the other side, light fields are used to manipulate and sense matter at the limits allowed by quantum mechanics, and matter is used to create tailor-made light and explore associated functionality.

A long history of manifold successful collaborations in this area involving many groups from several departments of the Faculty of Sciences is documented in DFG funded collaborative research centers and research units and the crucial role in the Cluster of Excellence ‘Engineering of Advanced Materials’. The latter is based on the investigation of materials at the microscopic, i.e., atomic and molecular, level and represents a bridge to the Faculty of Engineering. Obviously, this research focus benefits from a strong interaction with the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light.
