CFN Research Activities

“I am experienced in electrical characterization of nanostructured materials subjected to light, temperature and magnetic fields stimuli. These studies usually demand the development of novel nanofabrication techniques. For example, I am currently working in the use of an aberration-corrected STEM to perform e-beam lithography, pushing the limits of conventional lithography processes towards the fabrication of devices with 1 nm features.”
