Claudia Ojeda-Aristizabal, PhD
Students will be involved in fundamental research in nanotechnology. This fundamental research has lots of potential applications in health, that although are not directly addressed in the lab, they constitute one of the motivation for our projects.
We do in our lab sample fabrication as well as electronic transport experiments at low temperatures.
The current projects that we are studying are:
1. Study of quantum and macroscopic phenomena in layered materials like Na2IrO3 and RuCl3 by electronic transport measurements
2. Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy of layered materials.
The BUILD scholar will perform with the other undergraduates the sample fabrication, which is of great importance for good quality measurements. He or she will characterize the samples using an atomic force microscope. The BUILD scholar will also be involved in the electronic transport measurements performed at the lab.
The BUILD scholar will be trained in equipment like the atomic force microscope and the optical microscope, instruments largely used in the biology sciences. He or she will also learn general skills needed in a science research lab.
