July 17, 2014: The Max-Planck-Gesellschaft and the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation honour pioneering work in the field of quantum nanoscience
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.
