Characterization of nonlinear optical properties of various inorganic nanoparticles by employing z-scan and pump-probe setup.

Education

2011 - M.Sc degree in Material Science , University of Leoben, Austria.
project: Photoconductive Atomic Force Microscopy and Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy Measurements of Organic Semiconductor Nanostructures. under the supervision of Prof. Christian Teichert.

2011 - Started PhD by research, under the supervision of Prof. Werner Blau.
project: the characterization of nonlinear optical properties of various inorganic nanoparticles by employing z-scan and pump-probe setup. Size and shape of the particles was determined by means of TEM and DLS.
