Welcome to the Theoretical Electrical Engineering group (TET)

Our main research interest is the theoretical description of photonic and optoelectronic systems like optical nanoantennas, dielectric waveguides, photonic crystals, metamaterials, plasmonic systems, or biological photonic structures. Our speciality is the combinations of advanced material models with state-of-the-art numerical methods for the simulation of electromagnetic fields. For students we offer a wide range of courses ranging from the theoretical foundation of electromagnetism and numerics to advanced courses on field simulation and photonics.
