Laboratory for Nanomaterials

    Facility/equipment: Equipment

    • Location




    The Laboratory provides facilities for constructing nanostructures using ion and cluster beams. The structure, composition and electrical properties of the samples and materials thus produced can be characterised with a variety of methods. The main equipment include
    • Equipment for producing nanostructures with cluster ion beams
    • A facility for nanostructuring and downsizing with dry etching using low energy ion beams
    • Ion plating equipment
    • An Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)/a Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM)
    • Low Energy Electron Diffraction (LEED)
    • Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES)
    • An Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV) Variable Temperature Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)/A Scanning Tunneling Microscope (STM)
    • A Cryogen-Free Dilution Refrigerator System (~10mK) for the determination of the electric properties of nanostructures
