FACILITY FOR IMAGING, MANIPULATION AND MEASUREMENT OF MOLECULAR-SCALE QUANTUM MATERIALS

Grant number: LE0882878

Abstract

The development of functional electronic devices relies on understanding how properties on the atomic-scale influence the performance of new device materials. We will develop the capability to image and manipulate surfaces, and enable new protocols for probing the quantum properties of a wide range of materials that cannot currently be accessed at the molecular-level. By facilitating studies of important emerging materials such as diamond, fullerenes and magnetic molecules, the facility aims to place Australia at the forefront of new areas of surface and device science, and to develop new devices for quantum metrology, information and molecular detection within frontier quantum industries.
