Welcome to the research group Quantum Transport of the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology.
The Quantum Transport group studies and exploits novel quantum mechanical phenomena in nanometer-scale structures. Our current research focuses on superconducting circuits, quantum dots, nanowires, carbon nanotubes, diamond, and graphene. We employ in-house design and fabrication of (opto-) electronic devices and custom-made electronic and optical measurement techniques, from room temperature down to the milliKelvin regime. We use these devices for controlling quantum behaviour at the level of single spins and single photons, with the potential for fundamental breakthroughs and possible application to quantum computing and novel optoelectronics devices.
As of December 1st, 2013, the CosmoNanoscience activities at TU Delft are also part of the Quantum Transport group.
We have exciting seminars year round. Click on the icon below to view the calendar:
