Polymer-nanoparticle composites for thermally-tunable optical resonator devices

Martina Gerken

Kiel University

Prof. Dr. Martina Gerken received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering from Karlsruhe University, Germany, in 1998, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, USA, in 2003. She was Assistant Professor with Karlsruhe University from 2003 to 2008. In 2008, she was appointed as a Full Professor of Electrical Engineering and the Head of the Integrated Systems and Photonics Chair with Kiel University, Germany. In 2016 she spent a 6-months research sabbatical at the University of Glasgow, UK. She has authored more than 60 peer-reviewed journal articles and is the recipient of an ERC Starting Grant.


Progressing miniaturization and integration of optical systems requires optical devices that can be fabricated in a wafer-level process. Previously, we experimentally demonstrated a tunable optical aperture based on segmented... [ view full abstract ]
