Materials Innovation Platform (MIP) with MBE, ALD, and XPS

University of Notre Dame - Hinkle Lab


Reference Number: 163504

The group’s multidisciplinary research focuses on the growth, characterisation, and device physics of quantum and semiconductor materials for novel devices and applications.

The Group´s approach utilises advanced molecular beam epitaxy techniques, selective area atomic layer deposition, and highly developed materials characterisation to fundamentally understand the nucleation and growth process, material nanostructure, chemical bonding, and experimentally determined band structure. They then correlate those findings with advanced electrical transport and magnetic measurements from devices that they fabricate to take full advantage of the novel properties of the materials and heterostructures that are created. Their current research interests include semiconductor defects for quantum communication, topologically protected transport in semiconductors and metals, magnetic properties in 2D materials, and back-end-of-line materials and device integration.
