Basel Universität

Welcome to the Nanolino Lab
at the Department of Physics, University of Basel!


Our research interest focuses on the structure of insulating surfaces, molecular layers on surfaces, nanotribology, and instrumental development of force microscopy.

PhD position
2021-10-08

In a project titled Scanning Probe Microscopy for the Characterization of ultra-clean nanowires funded by the NCCR SPIN we will characterize the Si-Ge Nanowires (Si-Ge NW) and Fin FET transistors by pendulum Atomic Force Microscopy (pAFM). Our main objective is to measure energy dissipation and charge noise in Si-Ge NW quantum dots.
