Banzer, Peter, Univ.-Prof. Dr.rer.nat.
Peter Banzer is an experimental physicist by training and heads the group ‘Optics of Nano and Quantum Materials’ at the University of Graz. Together with his team he is studying the interactions of structured light and structured matter at nanoscale dimensions. Engineered light fields are an intriguing playground paving the way for the exploration of novel fundamental effects and phenomena as well as versatile applications in the field of nanometrology, sensing, imaging and beyond. In this context, the design and optical properties of nano and quantum materials play a major role, calling also for the development and study of novel material platforms.
