Transport at Nanoscale Interfaces

Nanoelectronics and Nano-Optics

Innovation in nanoelectronics and nano optics strongly relies on advancements and breakthroughs in fabrication technologies. We focus our research on the following techniques: nano-structuring by focused ion beams, micro-structuring by laser ablation, 3D printing, interface engineering by pulsed laser deposition. In addition we are creative in combining mentioned above methods with state-of-the-art technology and know-how available to us in BRNC and FIRST labs within ETH-domain.
