WELCOME TO
THE FISCHER GROUP
Micro Nano and Molecular Systems
Our group has broad interests in the interaction of acoustic, optical, electric, and magnetic fields with matter at small length scales. We work on new 3-D fabrication methods, self-assembly, actuation, and propulsion. We have observed a number of fundamental effects and are developing new experimental techniques and instruments.
 
We are also part of the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research in Heidelberg. For more info on additional research topics and the latest updates, please also see: MPI for Medical Research.

Highlight in Phys. Rev. Letters:

Amplification of acoustic forces. The work shows how centimeter-scale objects in liquid can be manipulated using the mutual attraction of two arrays of air bubbles in the presence of sound waves and it is part of an extensive Physics Focus by Philip Ball. Click here to see more information.

                                   

Latest news and publications:

Work on chiral nanostructures awarded RSC Horizon Prize

We are part of a team of scientists that has won the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Faraday Division Horizon Prize for the discovery of chiroptical harmonic scattering, theoretically predicted in 1979 and demonstrated experimentally 40 years later. Our colleagues are in the UK and Belgium - thank you.
