Thinner than light...
|The research group "Applied Quantum Physics" works with glass fibers having a diameter smaller than the wavelength of the guided light. The special properties of these glass fibers make them suitable for using them as a “quantum laboratory”.|
Dr. Adele Hilico was awarded with a Lise-Meitner-Fellowship by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). Adarsh Shankar Prasad was awarded with a doctoral fellowship of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. Congratulations!
