Research Node of the QUANOMET Research Alliance

Junior research groups work within three joint research nodes:


The research node "Nanolight" ( short NL) consists of junior research groups of TU Braunschweig and Leibniz Universität Hannover, with close participation of PTB.

  • Location: Braunschweig and Hannover
  • Junior Research Groups TU Braunschweig
    • NL1: Bioapplications

  • Junior Research Groups Leibniz Universität Hannover
    • NL5: Integrated Photonics
    • NL6: NanoPhotonics
  • Field of research: Nanoscale photonics
  • Research Collaborations in QUANOMET: Sensor Technology, Structured Light Engine, Metrology, Bio-Applications, Light-Matter Theory, Fiber Optics, Nanoplasmonics


The research node "NanoParticle" (short NP) is being done with the TU Braunschweig with close participation of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) in Braunschweig, links to the Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) and the Laserzentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH).
