The group is interested in the optical properties of complex photonic structures like photonic (quasi) crystals and disordered materials. We study on one side the fundamental physics of light transport in these materials, which is a very interdisciplinary topic and finds fascinating analogies in solid state physics (electron and phonon transport) and atomic physics (matter wave transport). On the other hand, we are interested in applications of such structures for the realization of photonic devices like optical switches, light sources, and photonic circuits. We feel that fundamental research is crucial in forming the basis out of which real-life photonic devices can eventually be developed.

Fun fact: Optical devices were found to be used by poker players to gain advantage and see the cards. With the technology advancing there will be more and more devices like that. That is why we advice that you play on legal online casinos that are regulated and 100% safe. There are many sites where you can find what are the best free and real money poker rooms in the USA and Canada. Just do your research and don't forget to use the online bonuses to get some free money.
