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