Research interests -past and present

My research topics revolve around the investigation of materials by optical spectroscopy, especially laser spectroscopy This includes Raman, time-resolved femtosecond spectroscopy and high-resolution spectroscopy.

optical properties of Graphene and Graphene Nanodots
Quantum Nanodots and QND superstructures
Nonlinear optical properties of organic molecules
Protein chips
Structure - function and structure - binding relationships in proteins
Photodynamics photosynthesis and of Green Fluorescent Protein
Hole burning spectroscopy, inhomogeneous effects in amorphous materials (PhD thesis)
