My Ph.D. work centered in electronic transport in semiconductor heterostructures (Advisor: Prof. E. Mendez). During my postodoctioral  stage I focused on the fabrication and study of quantum interferometers in the integer and fractional quantum Hall regimes. (Advisor: Prof. V. Goldman). At the CFN, my research interest is the study of quantum effects in the electronic transport of low-dimensional electron systems and nanostructures, which may give opportunities for novel technological applications, and for which unconventional device nanofabrication techniques are usually required.

Expertise

  • Electrical characterization at low temperatures and under magnetic fields
  • In-situ electrical characterization in the SEM and TEM
  • Electronic device fabrication, including all-inclusive device fabrication in the SEM/FIB system
  • Aberration-corrected e-beam lithography
  • Operation of liquid helium and biasing TEM holders
  • Fabrication of electrical contacts to TEM samples for biasing experiments

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.”
