Laboratory for Nanomaterials

    Facility/equipment: Equipment

    Equipments Details


    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
