Dr. Stephan Steinhauer studied electrical engineering and technical physics at TU Wien, where he received his PhD in 2014. His related research work conducted at AIT Austrian Institute of Technology focused on the growth and heterogeneous device integration of metal oxide nanowires for chemical sensing applications. Afterwards, he moved to the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Japan, working as Postdoctoral Scholar on nanoparticle design by gas-phase synthesis.
Currently, he works as researcher in the Quantum Nano Photonics Group at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Ongoing projects include:
- Growth and nanofabrication of metal oxides and superconducting thin films.
- Cu\(_2\)O micro- and nanostructures, ground-state excitons and Rydberg states.
- Device technologies for chemical sensing of gaseous molecules.
- Superconducting nanowires for single-photon detection.
