Report 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.
