Congrats to Kyle Willick and Brandon Buonacorsi

Kyle successfully defended his PhD thesis, “Carbon nanotube electromechanical systems: Non-linear dynamics and self-oscillation”, on April 21, 2020. Congrats Kyle!

Kyle Willick

His most recent work led to the publication Self-driven oscillation in Coulomb blockaded suspended carbon nanotubes in Physical Review Research.

Earlier work resulted in the publication Probing the non-linear transient response of a carbon nanotube mechanical oscillator in Applied Physics Letters.

Brandon successfully defended his PhD thesis, “Quantum dot devices in silicon and dopant-free GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures”, on Jan. 18, 2021. Congrats Brandon!


His recent work led to two publications:

Simulated coherent electron shuttling in silicon quantum dots in Physical Review B.

Optimizing lateral quantum dot geometries for reduced exchange noise, submitted for publication.
