Welcome to the Sandoghdar Division
at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light

    • Cryogenic localization microscopy
    • Two distant molecules communicate via single photons
    • iSCAT visualizes nanoconfinement in lipid bilayers
    • Nanopipette electrostatic trap
    • Label-free Single Protein Detection
  • The research of our group aims to advance experimental and theoretical mastery of light-matter interaction at the nanometer scale and to achieve the same degree of control and finesse that is known from the gas-phase quantum optics in the condensed phase. To do this, we combine concepts from quantum optics, laser spectroscopy, cryogenics, optical imaging, scanning probe technology and nanofluidics. In this endeavour, we have addressed a wide spectrum of scientific questions, ranging from quantum optics to biophysics. For more information, please consult our research website and our list of publications.
