Stefanie Kroker has been leading the junior research group “Metrology for Functional Nanosystems” as a junior professor since April 2016. The scientists from the TU Braunschweig and the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt work in the joint research centre LENA. With them, Professor Stefanie Kroker is researching, for example, how nanoscale structures interact with light and how light must be manipulated for quantum technologies.

In this way, Stefanie Kroker contributes to the major metrological collaborative projects in Lower Saxony, such as the Cluster of Excellence QuantumFrontiers and the Quantum Valley Lower Saxony. For these interdisciplinary research and networking achievements, she received the Lower Saxony Science Award in November 2020.
