FET-OPEN grant for topological states in germanium nanowires Limited scalability and the high sensitivity of qubits as building blocks for the quantum computer are still in the way of the ‘super computer’s’ big breakthrough. Researchers of the University of Twente,
The plan was to hike in the Swiss alps in the Greina area and stay overnight in the SAC hut Terrhütte. Due to the bad weather forcast, Martin, Christian and Frederick decided one day before to change to Ticino to
Our paper entitled “Spectroscopy of the superconducting proximity effect in nanowires using integrated quantum dots” appeared in the new open access Nature Journal Communications Physics. We investigated the very first superconductor-nanowire hybrid devices with tunnel barriers grown during the nanowire
A great number of PhD positions in the field of quantum science and quantum technologies has been funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie program. The nanoelectronics group was granted one position in
Our paper entitled “New Generation of Moiré Superlattices in Doubly Aligned hBN/ Graphene/hBN Heterostructures” appeared in Nano Letters. Two incommensurate lattices in contact generate a Moiré superlattice. This happens for the pair hBN-G (hexagonal boron nitride-graphene). Take encapsulated graphene hBN-G-hBN.
Wonderful weather: blue sky, sunshine and snow! We stayed overnight in the Berghotel Bischofalp We can highly recommend it. We all enjoyed the two days including Joost, who had to suffer a bit (see his right hand on the picture below):
