Marie Curie Fellowship for dr. Anatolie Mitioglu

Date of news: 2 February 2017

HFML researcher Anatolie Mitioglu has received a prestigious European Marie Curie Fellowship. This Fellowship stimulates researchers to enhance their career prospects by offering them advanced training and international mobility. With this two year personal grant entitled “Imaging the Motion of Magneto-Excitons in New Emerging Materials (IMME-NEM)” Mitioglu will study the optical properties of novel two dimensional semiconductors at HFML.HFML-DvA-152050

With this research project, Mitioglu aims to develop a new all-optical experimental technique within a high field magnet to investigate the energy-momentum relationship of coupled electron-hole pairs called excitons. The results will give crucial new fundamental information, which is relevant for the development of conceptually new photonic devices, where information can be transmitted by excitons travelling at the speed of light that can be externally manipulated. Eventually, this technique will be available to investigate other systems including black phosphorus, van der Waals heterostructures and exciton-polaritons in microcavities.
