Nanophysics and Nanotechnology group

Our group has developed techniques to reliably fabricate small feature sizes in increasingly complex materials (both metals and semiconductors) in order to explore quantum effects at submicron length scales. These quantum phenomena are of interest in their own right, but could also lead to applications in electronic and optical devices, which may exploit the wavefunction and spin of the electron. Our current research focuses quantum optics on artificial quantum systems, quantum phenomena in highly disordered superconducting films and wires, hybrid normal metal-superconductor systems, semiconductor heterostructures and quantum dots, terahertz detectors, nano magnetics.
