Parabolic Mirror Nanooptics Group

Group leader: PD Dr. Dai Zhang

Welcome to the parabolic mirror nano optics group website. We are a subgroup of the Nanospectroscopy research group of Prof. Alfred J. Meixner.

As a young and highly motivated group, we are dedicated in developing novel optical microscopic techniques and in applying them to study the light-matter interactions in the fields of fundamental as well as application-oriented science.
