Join us

Our recently established Group on Ultrafast Microphotonics works at the interface of nonlinear optics and ultrafast laser science and leverages novel integrated photonic chip-based systems to implement complex optical functionality on a micro-scale. The ability to generate, manipulate and concentrate light on micro- or even nano-scale dimensions enables unprecedented opportunities for nonlinear optical effects including self-organization, ultra-short pulse formation and interaction with the environment. Our research spans topics such as fundamental nonlinear optics, on-chip ultrafast light sources, as well as, cross-disciplinary applications in exo-planet detection, optical sensing and accelerator science. The group has access to state-of-the-art research infrastructure and the interdisciplinary campus provides a stimulating research environment.


If you are interested in working with us as a Postdoc, PhD-student or for your MSc/BSc project, please do not hesitate to contact Tobias Herr  (tobias.herr[at]

We look forward to hearing from you!
