Integrated Optical MicroSystems Group

Research Activities

Our research activities focus on micro-/nano-scale integrated optical devices. They include novel materials, structures, and optical phenomena, device design, realization, and characterization, as well as applications in optical sensing and communication. Currently we work on different on-chip integrated optical devices such as amplifiers and lasers, bio-sensors and medical instrumentation, and we explore phenomena based on opto-mechanical interactions. For the device fabrication we make use of the excellent clean-room facilities of the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, while the optical investigations are performed within our IOMS laboratories.
