Stefan Rotter is professor of theoretical physics at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) in Austria. After studies in Vienna and Lausanne, he obtained his Ph.D. in 2004, followed by a postdoctoral position at Yale University. Since 2011, he and the group he runs have focused on waves in disordered media, non-Hermitian physics, and quantum optics. The Rotter group frequently collaborates with experimental teams to take theoretical concepts related to these topics and implement them in the real world.


PT Symmetry Goes Quantum

A proposed microwave circuit would allow exploration of the quantum side of parity-time symmetry, which, in classical devices, gives rise to effects like one-way or stopped light. Read More »
