"The research focus of my group is in the field of exciton spectroscopy and spin physics of semiconductors and semiconductor nanostructures and their study by optical spectroscopy. The energy and spin structure of exciton complexes, as well as of their recombination and spin dynamics are also of interest.

The experiments are performed at low temperatures in liquid helium and in strong magnetic fields up to 17 Tesla. The following techniques will be used: Photoluminescence with high spectral resolution, optical spin orientation, spin-flip Raman scattering, optically detected magnetic resonance, pump-probe time-resolved Kerr/Faraday rotation, and optical harmonic generation. The following materials are studied: III-V and II-VI quantum wells and quantum dots fabricated by molecular beam epitaxy, colloidal nanocrystals, perovskites, dilute magnetic semiconductors.

The group has developed a long-term, well-established international collaboration with experimentalists and theorists."

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.



One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.



From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.

The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent "Technologiepark".
