Physics PhD Student Position
- Optical Nanoscopy with Molecule-Size Resolution: MINFLUX and Related Concepts -
(Code Number 18-19)
New concepts have radically overcome the longstanding limits to optical analysis of molecular
systems. Optical resolutions of a few nanometers have been demonstrated, well beyond Abbe‘s
diffraction limit, for example with the recent MINFLUX concept (Science 355, 606-612 (2017)).
This opens up entirely new experimental opportunities, breaking new ground in the study of
macromolecules and beyond.
The successful candidate will develop advanced optical instrumentation and investigate physical
imaging conditions and resolution performance. Alternatively, a related project involving
theoretical optical analysis and modelling can be offered. The candidate should have (or expect to
complete soon) a Master‘s or equivalent degree in Physics or Physical Chemistry or a comparable
