About the Project
This project will make use of Lancaster’s cleanroom for fabrication and the IsoLab facility for device characterisation. IsoLab is equipped with a dilution refrigerator capable of cooling devices down to 10 mK and is housed inside an electromagnetically shielded room. The filtered mains circuits and dedicated ground nest make this facility the ideal location for testing low-noise cryogenic electronics.
For this project, a student will learn to fabricate nanoelectronic devices using both 2D materials and semiconductors and characterisation of these inside a cryogenic refrigerator. This work is closely linked to existing collaborations with the National Graphene Institute in Manchester and the European Microkelvin Platform project and the student will have the opportunity to engage with these collaborations.
You are expected to have a strong interest and preferably knowledge in:
electrical measurements of nanoscale devices
data acquisition using Python or MATLAB
