When specialized devices are not commercially available, they have to be developed in house – and that pays off. This was realized recently also by two groups of students and post docs from the 3rd Physics Institute, who went ahead and commercialized their electronics developments.
Science and teaching at the institute comprises solid state quantum optics and spintronics with applications in modern microscopy and metrology applications in e.g. biophysics. Common to all experimental approaches is the use of photons as central tool. Besides set-ups in the field of optics and spin control facilities at the institute comprise synthesis, implantation and structuring of carbon materials, protein purification and cell culturing.
