Metrology for Functional Nanosystems

Working Group 4.01


The working group „Metrology for Functional Nanosystems“ is located at the LENA Laboratory for Emerging Nanomtrelogy“ at the interface between the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and the Braunschweig University of Technology (TU Braunschweig). The group supports the joint research activties of both institutions in the field of nanometrology and aims for the development and verification of novel nanooptical systems for metrological or sensoric applications as well as the investigation of metrological relevant light-matter interaction processes in nanoscale systems.
