Welcome to the research group Reiter

Our research group studies the theoretical modelling of dynamics on ultra short time and length scales. An introduction to our research can be found here. My CV and further information can be found in the research portal of the WWU Münster.

We have several collaborations within the WWU Münster, in particular with the AG Kuhn and the AG Bratschitsch, and with other theoretical and experimental groups from all over the world, e.g., with Martin Axt from Bayreuth, Germany, Ortwin Hess from London, UK, Jacek Kasprzak from Grenoble, France and Pawel Machnikowski from Wroclaw, Poland.

We are always happy to talk about our work. If you are interested in a bachelor or master thesis in our group, please contact us via E-Mail and make an appointment.

Ultrafast Optics in Nanostructured Systems


5th International Workshop on the Optical Properties of Nanostructures in Münster

© D. Wigger

Last week we had the 5th International Workshop on the Optical Properties of Nanostructures (OPON 2018) in Münster. About 100 participants from different countries attended interesting talks and had vivid discussions. The latest results were also exchanged during the poster session. The scientific programme was complemented by a conference dinner. We thank everybody for making this a successful conference and we are looking forward to the next OPON

New publication in 'Physical Review B' about ultrafast dynamics in quantum dots

Phys. Rev. B 97, 045302 (2018)

When a semiconductor quantum dot is excited into a higher state, an ultrafast relaxation into a lower states takes place. This process depends crucially on the details of the participating states as well as the available relaxation channels. We studied this dependence in this work theoretically and experimentally. After the relaxation, a single photon can be created. One can use our set-up to design a single photon amplifier.

The work was a joint project with the AG Leitenstorfer [en] from the University of Konstanz. Read more in the publication ...

Magnus Molitor obtains his Master's degree

© Magnus Molitor

Magnus Molitor finished his master’s thesis last year. In his thesis, Magnus has simulated four wave mixing signals of quantum dots doped with a single magnetic ion. Magnus calculated and analysed the complex spectra, which emerge due to the exchange interaction. In addition he studied the influence of phonons on the four wave mixing spectra. With finishing his thesis, Magnus has completed his master’s studied and he plans to stay in solid state theory for his PhD studies. Congratulations to Magnus and we wish him all the best.
