We study electronic transport through carbon nanotubes functionalized with molecules. Our focus is on molecular interactions with the goal to unravel spin as well as molecular dynamics of magnetic and biomolecules. Research includes:
- Device fabrication: Synthesis of carbon nanotubes (CNTs); Lithography of electronic devices; (Bio)functionalization from inside (peapods) and outside
- Microscopy and Spectroscopy: Characterization of functionalized CNTs and devices with abberation corrected high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and tip-enhanced Raman scattering (TERS)
- Electronic Transport: Molecular interactions in quantum transport; Noise measurements; Magnetoresistance
We have always interesting topics in emerging fields of experimental physics for Bachelor's and Master's theses available. If you are looking for projects or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. C. Meyer for more information.
