Low-dimensional materials and molecular nanostructures such as graphene and carbon nanotubes have fascinating properties and are of great interest to science and technology. We integrate such quantum materials into complex device structures, carry out state-of-the-art experiments and explore the potential for electronic, optoelectronic, photonic, and sensory applications. At the IQMT we develop single-photon emitters based on carbon nanotubes with quantum defects and study supercurrents in van der Waals heterostructures made of 2D materials.
The research is carried out as part of a cooperation between the TU Darmstadt and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology with labs at the Institute of Nanotechnology and the Institute of Quantum Materials and Technologies, hosting advanced nanofabrication, characterization and simulation methods.
For students: We offer bachelor-, master- and PhD-thesis projects, advanced research lab positions, and student jobs at our IQMT/INT labs at the Institute of Nanotechnology (INT) → jobs
