Nanoelectronics group at TIFR


  • May22 Our work featured on the cover of Nano Letters

  • April 22 our work on studying adhesion using bubbles in van der Waals materials published in Nano Letters doi: 10.1021/acs.nanolett.1c04341

  • Feb 22 -- Our collaborative work with group at IISc probing nature of charges residing on superconducting vortices published in Nano Letters doi:10.1021/acs.nanolett.1c04688 (2022).

What do we do and why?

We focus on probing the physics at the nanometer scale in a variety of systems. We study electron transport, topological properties and electromechanics in nanostrutures. Our work uses the nanofabrication facility at TIFR. Additionally, we use a combination of commercial and home-made electronics to measure the electronic signals from nanoscale devices. The goal of our work is to probe unique quantum mechanical effects and probe phenomena that is unique to nanoscale systems.

The reason for our exploration is to understand different aspects of fundamental physics and to explore potential applications.
