Heinz has developed a wide range of spectroscopic techniques to examine the properties and dynamics of nanoscale systems. These methods include interface sensitive nonlinear spectroscopy and time-resolved approaches, such as terahertz time-domain techniques. The measurement techniques have been applied to elucidate the electronic, optical, and chemical properties of 0-, 1-, and 2-dimensional materials and interfaces. The research would not have been possible without the insight and hard work of more than 70 graduate students and postdocs over the years.
Communications, metrology, biomedicine and more … The large-scale impact of optics is hard to beat!
