Among other areas, the group works on biosensor chips based on graphene, graphene oxide and carbon nanotubes that will improve the analysis of biochemical reactions and accelerate the development of novel drugs.
The objective of the laboratory is the research of quantum phenomenon in semiconductors and hybrid nanostructures. The combination of reduced dimension, topological non-triviality of electron spectrum, strong coupling and possibilities of nanolithography provides these systems with a set of unique physical attributes. Modern experimental methods in electronic measurements, including a technique for measuring quantum fluctuation noise, ultrasensitive radio-frequency and microwave measurements, minute transport measurements in strong magnetic fields and ultralow temperatures are planned to be implemented in the laboratory.
Main lines of research are: Mesoscopic electronic systems; Superconducting hybrid structures; Quantum phase transitions; Spintronics; The two-dimensional electron gas and the quantum Hall effect; Quantum magnetism and systems with "topological order"; Physics of quantum computation.
Training is carried out on the basis of unique scientific and technological developments of the TPU Nano?Center: patented methods and equipment for molding complex shapes from nano? and micro?dispersed powders of ceramic compositions without using ligaments and plasticizers.
