Congratulations Sean and Eduardo!

Sean Walker won the first place poster prize at the Guelph-Waterloo Chemistry annual meeting last week (April 2016).
His poster was titled: “Deposition of functionalized molecular nanomagnets on graphene”  2016AwardsPoster
Eduardo Barrera obtained an Ontario Graduate Scholarship for 2016-2017.
Congrats to both!

Placing a nanowire with a micromanipulator (video)

Greg Holloway made this really cool video demonstrating the placement of a semiconductor nanowire using our recently home-built micromanipulator tool. This improves dramatically upon the previous method of mechanically depositing many wires randomly on a pre-patterned device substrate, and opens up new possibilities for quantum device fabrication. Nice work Greg!

Welcome and Congrats

Welcome to Sean Walker who starts as a new MSc student this Fall. Sean graduated from the University of Manitoba and holds an NSERC graduate scholarship.

Congratulations to Greg Holloway who won an IQC Achievement Award this term for his body of work on nanowire transport experiments!

Also, farewell to Mustafa Muhammad who completed his postdoctoral appointment this September.

Finally, an article appeared today on our University homepage:

Recent experimental work featured in APS Viewpoints

APS Viewpoint article by Xuedong Hu highlights recent work by our group that was published in Physical Review Letters. The Viewpoint article describes the electron spin resonance work lead by Mike Zhang that exploits the anisotropic hyperfine interaction to gain efficient and universal quantum control of a pair of nuclear spins indirectly, by irradiating the electron spin they are both coupled to.
