The Quantum Sensors Project develops sensors based on quantum phenomena for spectroscopy, imaging, and other precision measurements for … more

CODATA values of the fundamental constants

Every four years, the Committee on Data for Science and Technology (CODATA) issues recommended values of the fundamental physical constants. The … more

Si-Based Single Spin Coherence and Manipulation

We are characterizing Si-based single-electron quantum dots at low temperatures (down to 10 mK) to explore the possibility of quantum coherent … more

Silicon-based single electron current standards

We are working to fabricate and perform low-temperature measurements of CMOS-compatible single electron devices in silicon which could be used as … more

Modeling and Simulation of Nanofabrication (Archived)

Most manufacturing has historically been based on top-down fabrication and assembly. With rapid advances in nanotechnology, there is increasing … more
