Transport at Nanoscale Interfaces

Since October 2016, the lab is focusing on nanoscale transport phenomena and the Nanoscale Hybrid Electronic Systems group at the University of Basel is transferring its activities within the lab.

Main activity areas

  • Hybrid Nanoscale Interfaces:  Exploration of the electrical and optical properties of devices containing atomically precise structures with sizes reaching typically only a few nanometers.
  • Micro- and nanostructures:  Micro- and nanostructuring of mechanical, electronic and photonic materials and devices, e.g. with laser ablation, Ga-FIB, He-FIB, HR-SEM.
  • Measurement technology:  optical, tera-hertz (THz), ultrasound (UT), infra-red (IR), image processing and analysis as well as electrical, mechanical, optical and thermal measurements.
  • Reliability and safety:  Dependability, reliability, availability, lifetime, degradation and failure analysis as well as reliability and environmental testing of materials, devices, and systems, including micro- and nano- electronics and –photonics, as well as electrical equipment, power electronics, and energy conversion and storage systems.

Types of activities

  • Research and development (in collaboration or as service)
  • Services (consulting, assessments, investigations, measurements, testing)
  • Knowledge transfer (lecturing, teaching, publications, presentations)
  • Education  ( PhD- and master students, physics technician apprentices)

Clients

  • Domestic economy and industry: (ICT, electrical and mechanical industry, medtech, aerospace)
  • Research institutes (ETHs, Universities, etc.)
  • Public authorities: (international, federal, cantonal, local)
