Ultrasound, Microwaves and Optics

The Optics Group focuses on both fundamental and applied research in the areas of Nanophotonics, Nanoscopy and Sensor Technology. It has a strong track record in optical waveguide technology for gas sensing, spectroscopy, optical trapping, and super-resolution imaging (optical nanoscopy). Four prestigious ERC grants awarded to the group members within the last 5 years (Jágerská, Agarwal, 2x Ahluwalia) stimulate cutting-edge, high impact research with access to modern infrastructure and leading international collaboration partners. In addition to this, the group is hosting on-going 3 RCN funded projects FRIPRO Young (Jágerská), and Nano2021 and BioTek2021 (Ahluwalia). The Optics group consist of 4 principle investigators (Hellesø, Ahluwalia, Jágerská and Agarwal), 7 post-docs/researchers, 7 PhDs. There is opening for  several PhDs and Post-doc positons within the group.
