After a postdoc stay Christiph joined Papierfabrik Luisenthal in february 2017 and he will be in charge of the BMBF project METNETWORK.
In a joint work with experimantal physics, we demonstrate the single molucule photoswitching in Scientific Reports, 7, 41739, 2017
we diferentiate between blinking and deliberate photoswitching.
