Current research activities

  1. Light-matter interaction
    • Non-equilibrium charge dynamics in nano- and mesoscopic structures
      The aim of these studies is the generation and control of charge currents and charge polarization of confined electronic systems by sculpturing appropriately the properties of the driving field.
    • Field-induced molecular alignment and orientation
      We use standard methods of quantum dynamics and non-linear physics to figure out the optimal fields for inducing in gas-phase and surface-deposited polar molecules an alignment or an orientation of the molecular axis with respect a predefined external direction.
    • Radiation characteristics of nanoscopic structures
      Using standard density-matrix and quantum electrodynamics methods we investigate the emission spectrum of semiconductor-based nanostructures such as nanorings and nanocrystal.
    • Quantum evolution and geometry
      We look at the interrelation between the properties of driven quantum systems and geometric phases as well as the underlying classical dynamics.
    • Strong field physics
      We inspect the behaviour of atomic and elementary particles exposed to high-intensity laser fields.
