Overview

Our group studies the electronic properties of molecular and mechanical systems at the nanoscale. Most of the experiments we perform involve a combination of top-down and bottom-up nanotechnology.

The MED group consists of several labs with different expertises:

van der Zant Lab
Molecular electronics, semiconducting nanoparticles and room temperature nano-electromechnical systems
Steele Lab
Mircowave probes of motion and matter
Otte Lab
Atomically assembled spin lattices
Caviglia Lab
Designer quantum materials
Gröblacher Lab
Quantum optomechanics with photonic crystals
Klapwijk Lab
Mesoscopic superconductivity and quantum matter

In addition, MED is host to the following affiliate PIs:

Steeneken Lab
Applied nanophysics
Endo Lab
Cosmology with nanotechnology
Gao Lab
Terahertz quantum cascade lasers and superconducting mixers for space applications
Zwiller Lab
Quantum optics at the nanoscale
