The laboratory has theoretical background and experimental capabilities in the following fields:

  • Steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy
  • Luminescence phenomena in pure and doped inorganic materials (oxides, fluorides, phosphates, diamond, etc)
  • Raman and luminescence microspectroscopy
  • Optical measurements at cryogenic temperatures
  • Optical sensor measurements (optical thermometry, optical gas sensing)
  • Soft chemistry synthesis (microwave-hydrothermal, solvothermal, sol-gel, co-precipitation, etc.) of optical, biomedical and sensor materials
  • Non-destructive micron-scale measurement of stress fields in glasses by optical methods
  • (Spectrally resolved) thermoluminescence measurements
