Research in the Jarillo-Herrero group lies in the area of experimental condensed matter physics, in particular quantum electronic transport in novel low dimensional nanomaterials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes.
Their research is focused on fabrication of devices that exploit the quantum-mechanical properties of materials. Because superconductors provide an ideal medium for studying quantum mechanics in the solid state, they focus on superconductive materials.
Specific interest of the group lies in specifically in the synthesis, characterization and nano-patterning of metal nanoparticles, the understanding of the complex interfacial relationship between organic molecules and metallic nanocrystals, and the fabrication of nanoparticle-based devices.
This website is a portal to research in nano- and micro-scale technologies within the MIT School of Engineering. A School-wide initiative, Tiny Technologies, or 'TT,' seeks, through advanced, interdisciplinary research, to create new knowledge and novel technologies in the fast-moving fields of nano- and micro-scale technologies.
This inter-departmental Center brings together, MIT researchers and industrial partners to advance the science and engineering of graphene-based technologies. The Center explores advanced technologies and strategies that enable graphene-based materials, devices and systems to provide discriminating or break-through capabilities for a variety of system applications ranging from energy generation and smart fabrics and materials, to RF communications and sensing.
The George J. Kostas Nanoscale Technology and Manufacturing Research Center is the primary facility for micro and nanofabrication at Northeastern University. The Kostas facility also serves as the main facility for the new NSF Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (CHN) at Northeastern University, in partnership with the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and the University of New Hampshire.
IGERT Nanomedicine Science and Technology program at Northeastern University is a new integrated doctoral education program in the emerging field of Nanomedicine, created with support from the National Cancer Institute and the National Science Foundation.
