About our laboratory


Our laboratory is housed within the main Department of Physics building 3W. A dedicated setups for transport measurements are up and runnind in 3W 5.6. There is one water-cooled resistive magnet and a superconducting magnet system currently capable of field up to 7T and a sample temperature down to 1.6 K.

Fabrication facilities are available at the David Bullet laboratory (nano-fabrication facility) with equipment such as for optical and e-beam lithography. This facility is conveniently located just next door to the department.

AFM, TEM and SEM are also available at the Microscopy and Analysis Suite located in the same building as the department.

Facilities are also readily available through collaborations with other members of the nanoscience group.

What is it like?

If you join this group as a student or post-doc, you can enjoy benefits from belonging to a compact team as well as a large group - i.e. we are a group within a group. You will probably share an office with other students or post-docs in the Nano Science group with opportunities to mingle with people working in nearby but diverse fields from day-to-day. The Nanoscience Group organises weekly seminars with varied content such as reports on recent work, reports on recent conferences, introductions to experimental techniques etc. Post-graduate lectures on topics chosen by the students are also organised by the group.
