The main activities of the group are focused on the development of magnetoelectronics which can be reshaped on demand after fabrication. These shapeable (flexible, stretchable and printable) magnetic sensorics can be used to realize interactive consumer electronics, e.g. intelligent packaging, postcards or promotional materials in the spirit of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology. Alternatively, shapeable magnetosensitive devices can be used to monitor displacements or motion and provide feedback as needed, e.g. for smart implants, proximity sensorics for on-skin or wearable electronics or for the realization of the sensory feedback systems for unique class of soft actuators – soft robotics.

The group research focuses on the interaction of quantum systems with optical, electronic, magnetic and mechanical excitations in nanostructures. Atomic-scale qubits are created using ion-beam technologies, and their coherent control is carried out using various spectroscopic techniques with temporal and spatial resolution. The goal is to evolve from basic science to practical applications in quantum sensing, communication, and computing.
