I use iSCAT microscopy techniques to understand the interaction of cellular organisms on a fundamental level. My project aims at the development and pushing the limits of optical sensing and protein analysis with a particular emphasis on cellular secretion.

Publications from before my time at MPL:

  • Bottom-Up Assembly of Molecular Nanostructures by Means of Ferroelectric Lithography
    Alexander Haußmann, André Gemeinhardt, Mathias Schröder, Thomas Kämpfe, and Lukas M. Eng
    Langmuir, 2017, 33 (2), pp 475–484 | Journal

I studied Bachelor and Master in Physics at the Technical Universities in Chemnitz and Dresden. I mainly focused on nonlinear optics and atomic force microscopy. Afterwards, I joined the group of Prof. Sandoghdar at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light to do my PhD in the field of biophysics and microscopy.
