What’s new on electrostatically defined quantum dots in bilayer graphene at ETH Zürich: a seminar by Dr. Annika Kurzmann

On Friday, November 29, the Aachen Graphene and 2D Materials Center will have another cutting-edge seminar on graphene research: Dr. Annika Kurzmann, a post-doc in Klaus Ensslin’s group at ETH Zürich, will present her latest results on electrostatically defined quantum dots in bilayer graphene.  

The ETH group has pioneered the use of graphite gates to reduce electrostatic disorder in graphene-based devices — an advancement that has allowed demonstrating the very first quantum point contacts and the first few-electron quantum dots in bilayer graphene.  As a post-doc, Annika has been pushing even further this development.

Annika is not only an expert on quantum dots in bilayer graphene, but also on optical and transport measurements in self-assembled quantum dots, a field which has been the subject of Master and PhD thesis in the group of Axel Lorke at the University of Duisburg-Essen.

The seminar will be at 11:00 a.m. in room 28A301 in the Physikzentrum.
