Ulf Leonhardt from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel is currently visiting us as a guest professor and giving a lecture on the “quantum vacuum” – a topic to which he has made several seminal contributions. Welcome Ulf!
Andrea Pupic, who carried out her Bachelor thesis on “coherent perfect absorbers” with Kevin Pichler in our group, received the poster price for her research at the event “Celebrating Women in Physics” – congratulations!
Ulf Leonhardt from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel is currently visiting the group in terms of an extended research stay and we enjoy very much the fruitful collaboration with him.
Konstantinos Makris, our previous Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow in the group and long-term collaborator, obtained tenure at the University of Crete. Congratulations!
An image proposed by Matthias Kühmayer to illustrate our work on `Scattering Invariant Modes´ was selected for the June cover image of Nature Photonics. Congrats to Matthias!
This year, three of our present and past postdocs in the group have obtained faculty positions in India as well as research positions in Croatia and at the CNRS in France. Congratulations to Himadri, Ivor and Nicolas!
An image produced by Matthias Kühmayer for our recent work on optimal wave control was chosen as the header for the March online issue of Nature Photonics.
Our group is now part of the Erwin Schrödinger Center for Quantum Science & Technology (ESQ), which is an Austria-wide postdoc and discovery programme dedicated to highly innovative research. Funding comes from the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF) and the coordination is carried out by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW).
Our new group website is online – thanks to Ingrid Unger, Felix Hummel, Andre Brandstötter, Matthias Zens, Ivor Krešić, Matthias Kühmayer and many other helping hands for getting it ready.
