We present some recent results on kernel bounds for the semigroup
generated by the Dirichlet-to-Neumann operator when the
underlying operator has H\"older continuous coefficients and the
domain has a $C^{1+\kappa}$-boundary. The proof
depends on Gaussian bounds for derivatives of the semigroup
kernel of an elliptic operator with Dirichlet boundary conditions.
As a consequence the Dirichlet-to-Neumann semigroup is holomorphic
on the right half-plane on $L_1$.
If time permits, we also discuss the diamagnetic Dirichlet-to-Neumann

This is joint work with El Maati Ouhabaz.
