- Hybrid Inorganic-Organic NanoElectronics
In hybrid inorganic-organic nanoelectronics, organic and inorganic materials, as well as top-down and bottom-up fabrication routes are combined for realizing functional electronic devices.
Controlling and probing charge carrier spin polarization in semiconductors via electrical means is an attractive route towards the development of practical semiconductor spintronic devices, which are expected to have a strong impact on future information processing and storage technologies.
- Silicon Quantum Electronics
We study the quantummechanical behavior of isolated electrons in silicon. We confine single electrons in quantum dots, and probe their spin states in transport measurements at cryogenic temperatures.
In acoustoelectronics acoustic waves are utilized to manipulate and transport charge carriers. Particularly interesting are surface acoustic waves (SAWs) in which virtually all acoustic energy is confined within one wavelength of the surface.
