Research areas

The scientific work addresses the development and application of frequency-, time- and spatially resolved spectroscopic approaches for:

  • biomedical tissue diagnosis (spectral histopathology)
  • characterization of the interaction between low
  • molecular molecules and biological target molecules
  • derivation of structure-property and structure dynamic relationships of biomolecules and innovative materials

Teaching fields

Prof. Schmitt teaches classes in fundamental physical chemistry (for Bachelor's and Master's degree student in chemistry) and spectroscopy and imaging for Master's degree students in chemistry and chemical biology.

Research methods

The laboratories led by Prof. Schmitt offer possibilities for linear and nonlinear laser spectroscopy by utilizing the following equipment:

  • resonance Raman spectroscopy
  • non-linear multimodal imaging, combining:
  • coherent anti-Stokes Raman (CARS) microscopy
  • stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy
  • second harmonic generation (SHG) imaging
  • multi-photon excited autofluorescence imaging
