Quantum Nano Engineering Lab

Nano-structures are likely to become primary components of future quantum electronic devices. Although practical realization of such devices faces a number of challenges, the benefits from their successful implementation can be enormous. In our work we aim at achieving quantum properties in standard devices by developing monolayered hybrid surfaces. The hybrid nano layers change the micro scale devices properties and add quantum features to them. This methodology leads to a generic technology for constructing nano-systems in which many devices are interconnected and operate in unison, without inhibiting their quantum nature. Nature in several cases uses quantum mechanics in order to achieve extraordinary properties. Our controlled nano tool box can mimic nature and open a new way for upgrading exciting devices to the quantum level of operation.
