Since June 2015: PhD student in the group for Optical Technologies and Photonics (Georg von Freymann), department of physics, TU KaiserslauternJanuary 2013 – July 2013: Exchange semester at Universidade de Santiago de Compostela (Spain)October 2009 – May 2015: Diploma in physics at TU Kaiserslautern (equivalent to the Masters degree)


We study the transition between bulk states and an edge state in the topologically nontrivial Su-Schrieffer-Heeger (SSH) system, in which the edge state is driven by a local AC-field. Theory is verified by experiments in... [ view full abstract ]
