Visiting professor Ulrich Hohenester at the Physics international master’s degree programme

The Physics international master’s degree programme sees the debut of visiting professor Ulrich Hohenester (University of Graz). He is visiting professor at FIM, the Department of Physics, Information Technology and Mathematics at Unimore. The Austrian professor will hold a course focused on the interactions between radiation and nanomaterials.

The Department of Physics, Information Technology and Mathematics (FIM) at Unimore sees the debut of visiting professor Ulrich Hohenester. He is visiting professor at Physics , the educational programme that since 2015 has been part of the educational offer of the University, provided in English and addressed to an audience of international students.

Professor Ulrich Hohenester, who comes from the University of Gratz in Austria, this semester will hold the course “ Quantum and Nano-Optics”.  

Professor Hohenester is a world renowned scientist in the field and not new to Unimore as he spent three years in the Nanoscience Theoretical group directed by professor Elisa Molinari, working on the properties of quantum dots, semiconductor materials with sizes of a few nanometres.

Professor Guido Goldoni, coordinator of the Physics international Master’s Degree Programme, states that “Professor Hohenester comes one year after professor Annabella Selloni, of Princeton University. The opportunity to welcome at our Department valuable scientists available to give classes on subjects taken directly from their research is the result of international scientific collaborations in which our physicists from Modena participate. This network of relationships allows for a continuous update of the contents of our master’s degree and a unique opportunity for students to get in touch with the world of scientific research while they are still studying.”

Ulrich Hohenester

He obtained the PhD in Theoretical Physics in 1997 at the University of Graz and performed his research at the Department of Physics of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia between 1997 and 2000, financed by an Marie Curie EU grant reserved to young scientists for performing their research at the best European centres. Once he got back to the University of Graz, he became professor of Theoretical Physics at the Department of Physics of the Austrian university.

His research activity mainly focuses on the properties of semiconductor nanostructures, on the optical properties of metal nanoparticles, and on quantum condensates of ultra-cold atoms.
