Prof. Dr. Peter Vogl


Theoretical Semiconductor Physics
Professor emeritus since October 1, 2014



Academic Career and Research Areas

Professor Vogl conducts research on theoretical solid state physics. His research focuses primarily on semiconductor materials, quantum information theory, spintronics, quantum transport and laser physics.

Professor Vogl (b. 1949) studied at the University of Graz, received his doctorate in 1974, and acquired his postdoctoral teaching qualification (habilitation) in 1980 after several years spent working as a researcher in the USA (University of Urbana-Champaign in Illinois) and Germany (Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart). He was a visiting researcher at Los Alamos National Laboratory from 1986 to 1987 and joined TUM Physics Department as a professor in 1990. Professor Vogl has held the Chair of Theoretical Physics since 1993.
