RF studies of mesoscopic semiconductor structures

The project involves investigating the radio frequency graph mesoscopic semiconductor structures - symmetry(0-15 GHz, known as RF) properties of mesoscopic devices. The combination of high frequencies and low temperatures should reveal new physics in semiconductor nanostructures. The research is based at Royal Holloway where there are state-of-the-art cleanrooms and measurement facilities. A new dilution fridge with a base temperature of 10 mK will be dedicated to these new experiments, allowing more RF lines and space for low-temperature amplifiers, filters, circulators, etc., to be positioned close to the sample.

The project

The proposed research would suit a graduating student in physics or engineering, who would like to learn new experimental skills both in the cleanroom and measurement lab. The experimental work involves both individual and team skills, and is well suited to those with a broad understanding of quantum mechanics and solid-state physics.
