Dr Daniel Wigger (He/Him)

Research Fellow, Quantum Nanophotonics group, Trinity College Dublin 
Daniel Wigger’s research is focused on the simulation of ultrafast spectroscopy of nanostructures. His studied systems range from quasi-zero dimensional single-photon emitters like semiconductor quantum dots and color centers in hexagonal boron nitride to two dimensional monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenide. Daniel is often taking the microscopic interplay between optically driven charge carriers and lattice vibrations in the form of phonons into account. In this context he is actively exploring the field of hybrid phonon-based quantum technologies. Many of the projects are carried out in direct collaboration with experimental groups.

Research Interests:
● Quantum optics & quantum acoustics
● Ultrafast nonlinear spectroscopy
● 2D materials & single-photon emitters
