Technische Universiteit Delft

TUDelft, with a research staff of 2,600 employees, is the largest and most diverse engineering university in The Netherlands. The Department of Quantum Nanoscience hosts a challenging and interdisciplinary research environment focused on investigating physical processes at the nanoscale. These studies involve the development of innovative fabrication and measurement techniques and advanced theoretical models. The Department is part of the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft, one of the five nanoscience institutes endowed by the prestigious Kavli Foundation (together with Cornell, Harvard, Caltech, and Berkeley).



Main tasks: Electrical characterization of spin radicals in graphene three-terminal devices, quantifying spin-spin interactions, and more generally studying electronic transport through spin transistors; give feedback to the design and the synthesis of the spin systems; give feedback to theory and simulations; complement scanning probe studies.

Expertise/profile: Spin-transistor device fabrication and magnetic-field dependent (single-molecule) transport measurements at various temperatures including those that can be achieved in dilution refrigerators.
