PROBE AND ENGINEER INTERACTIONS IN ATOMIC-SCALE DEVICES WITH A LT STM (MATCHING UOM CONTRIBUTION FOR NON-LEAD LIEF GRANT)

Grant number: LE150100151 | Funding period: 2015 - 2015

Completed

Abstract

The project aims to establish a facility to exploit the spectroscopic and spatial resolution of an ultra-low temperature scanning tunnelling microscope in conjunction with atomically controlled dopant engineering. In a variety of experiments the research team will explore ultra-scaled transistors, quantum information science devices, and engineered quantum matter. Improving our ability to investigate semiconductor materials at the atomic scale impacts fields ranging from electronics, telecommunication, quantum information to renewable energy research and puts Australia at the forefront of the field of controlled atomic systems in semiconductors.
