Benedikt Mayer is a post-doctoral researcher in the MIND group at IBM Research Zurich. His work focuses on the design and optical spectroscopy of nano-lasers, aiming to explore the ultimate scaling limits of such devices.
He received his undergraduate degree (Diplom) in Physics from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) in 2012, where he conducted research in the field of plasmonics.
Benedikt joined Prof. Finley’s group at the Walter Schottky Institute (WSI) as a PhD student, where he designed and investigated III-V nanowire lasers and their fundamental properties.
He joined IBM Research Zurich in May 2016, continuing his research on integrated semiconductor nano-lasers.
