Double Quantum Dot

Quantum Computing
*Postdocs Available*

Electrons in silicon have relatively long spin coherence times, which motivates research into the use of quantum dots in Si/SiGe for use as prototype qubits.


Silicon Nanostructures

Silicon/silicon-germanium heterostructures allow the fabrication of gated quantum dots in modulation doped heterostructures.

Silicon Valley Splitting

Bulk silicon has a six-fold orbital degneracy can be lifted by both strain and quantum confinement.


Silicon Nanomembranes

Nanomembranes of silicon/silicon-germanium offer a path to the generation of strain without the incorporation of dislocations.

Intermittent Contact AFM

Intermittant contact AFM enables the measurement of in-plane as well as out-of-plane properties of materials.


Nanowires and Nanotubes

Nanotubes can be suspended to form networks and individual devices.
