Controlled Nanofabrication

Abstract

A significant challenge in research on nanostructures is the lack of sufficient control over the fabrication processes. Therefore, an important aspect of our research is the study of nanostructure fabrication processes with the goal of achieving higher levels of control and reproducibility.

Project Description

A significant challenge in research on nanostructures is the lack of sufficient control over the fabrication processes. However, in order to study a certain device systematically or use it for real-life applications, one needs to be able to fabricate the device in a reproducible fashion. Therefore, an important aspect of our research is the study of nanostructure fabrication processes with the goal of achieving higher levels of control and reproducibility. Examples include the application of electric field during the growth of carbon nanotubes to align them into one- and two-dimensional structures, or systematic study of the effect of gas flow rates on the structural characteristics of grown carbon nanotube forests. Our work in this area directly supports all the device research discussed further below.
