Brief CV
Research activity in nano-electronics/-devices and -spintronics in the School of Physics and at the Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN) at the Trinity College Dublin.
Main focus of research is transport phenomena in low-dimensional inorganic and organic nano-structured materials and single nano-objects in magnetic fields and down to low temperatures. Investigation of intrinsic charge- and spin-transport properties of one-dimensional (1D) organic and inorganic semiconductor nanowires (germanium and silicon nanowires, carbon nanotubes), graphene, thin organic films (contactless conductivity measurements), nano-ferromagnets and nano-superconductors.
Within this research area, special focus on interface- and contact-properties of 1D nanowires with higher-dimensional electrodes, organic and inorganic contact electrode material, novel approaches to nano-device designs (contact-determined, two-terminal devices, light-interaction), impact of mechanical strain and confinement on magneto- and spin-transport, (local) doping of nanowire systems, and magnetochiral and magnetoelectric transport effects in nano-structures.
Side projects: Impact of magnetic fields on the mortality of cancer cells for drug optimisation. Development of DC electrical measurement technique for nanostructured materials in high magnetic fields up to 70 T and 2D voltage-pick-up micro-systems for ultrafast transient magnetic fields up to 300 T.
