Research summary

I study quantum transport in nano-scale silicon transistors and single molecule junctions. In state-of-the-art silicon transistors the active channel region is so small that it may only contain a single dopant atom. Using a series of microwave pulses this atom can be brought into a coherent superposition of quantum states, which can be read-out electrically. Similarly, evidence of quantum interference in a single molecule can be found by measuring the charge transport through it. The aim of my research is to harness quantum interference and superposition in atomic and molecular electronic devices.
