Integrated Quantum-Optics and Optomechanics
Please note: We have moved to the University of Münster:
Welcome to the homepage of our lab. The group was established in October 2011 at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, led by Prof. Dr. Wolfram Pernice within the framework of the Emmy-Noether Programm (DFG funded). Research in the group is focused on the use of nano-photonics and nano-mechanics to realize novel functionality of integrated optical chips. Have a look at some of our recent work at the research pages.
Our paper on photonic memories appears in Nature Photonics, hits news.
Simone's article on multi-photon detection appears on the cover of APL. Read the article>>
Patrik's work on surface functionalized diamond devices appears on the cover of Advanced Optical Materials.
Wolfram was appointed as a Professor! Congratulations from all the Pernice Group members!
Patrik's paper on diamond electro-optomechanical resonators is on the cover of APL. Read the article>>
Patrik wins prestigious Deutsche Telekom Stiftung scholarship. Well done!
Patrik Rath wins the KDOP outstanding publication award in the research area "Photonic Materials & Devices" for his work on diamond optomechanics. Congratulations!
Carlos wins the outstanding presentation award at this year's Phase Change and Ovonics Symposium (EPCOS). Congratulations!
