||In my ResearchSchool-Plus project I visited the Photonics West 2014 conference, the largest
conference on optical engineering, optoelectronic devices and circuits. At this conference, I had the
chance to present my research and attend various interesting talks of researchers from all around
the world. Afterwards, I visited the University at Buffalo, New York, and Prof. Zutic’sresearch
group there. In the field of spintronics, Prof. Zutic is one of the most renowned researchers, having
authored highly cited review papers. During my stay at Buffalo I could consolidate future
collaborations and gain more insight into various aspects of my research.
