Photons trapped in a cavity can cause a crystal known as Strontium Titanate (SrTiO3) to become ferroelectric, according to a new study by the MPSD’s Theory group. The findings have been published in PNAS. more

MPSD and MIT researchers predict that light trapped in a cavity can be used to create a new kind of particle in a solid, consisting of three components at once: Light (photons), electronic excitations (excitons) and lattice vibrations (phonons). more

Prineha Narang is coming to the MPSD from Harvard University for an extended research stay. She has received two prestigious prizes: A Max Planck Sabbatical Award for her work in Germany and the Humboldt Foundation's Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award for her research work to date. more
