Are you interested in learning the quantum mechanical behaviors of electrons and spins in two-dimensional materials? Join our team to create these materials and explore their exotic properties with potential for quantum applications.
The average smartphone is millions of times faster than the computers used by NASA to put men on the moon in the 1960's. What makes it all possible? Nanotechnology. The relentless pace of Moore’s Law has seen transistor nodes shrinking to 2 nanometers. Further down-scaling of transistors will require more exotic materials in conjunction with a paradigm shift in device design.
In this project, students will participate in synthesizing and characterizing a class of two-dimensional materials with a thickness of only a few atomic layers. They will learn to control the spin properties of electrons in these materials for information storage and processing.
