Organisation profile

The Nanophysics and Nanotechnology group consists of five academic staff with expertise in all aspects of the fabrication and measurement of nanostructures; this experience is matched by processing (e-beam lithography, clean rooms) and low temperature measurement facilities.

In the group we have developed techniques to reliably fabricate small feature sizes in increasingly complex materials (principally metals, but also semiconductors) in order to explore quantum effects at submicron length scales. These quantum phenomena are of interest in their own right, but could also have application in the electronic and optical devices of the future, which may exploit the wavefunction and spin of the electron.

We have collaborations with experimental and theoretical groups around the world, and there are opportunities (both PhD and MSc) to work in the group.
