One of the most fascinating areas of research in mesoscopic physics is the transport properties of one-dimensional (1D) quantum wires. In this webinar, we present recent experimental results of a low-density quasi-1D device fabricated using GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure,that has different gating combinations to control the carrier density and confinement potential.
Nov 22, 2012
Atomic layer deposition (ALD) has established itself as the deposition technique of choice for ultra-thin, controlled, conformal, pin-hole free coatings. In an age of nanotechnology advances ALD is an ideal tool for depositing on nanoscale features.
Professor Erwin Kessels covers:
• recent advances in plasma ALD processing through careful control of the ion energies and plasma conditions to tune the properties of the materials being deposited;
• applications of ALD that have benefited from advanced plasma techniques.
The webinar runs for 45 minutes and includes a question and answer session at the end.

Most atomic force microscopes (AFM) are stand-alone configurations. They either have limited viewing options or only work with transparent samples with less than optimal resolution e.g. in combination with inverted optical microscopes. The N8 NEOS is the first high-performance AFM with the look and feel of an upright optical microscope. The truly seamless integration of the two methods combines both, fast sample navigation and optimum resolution.
The webinar highlights the unique features and upgrade options that make the N8 NEOS a versatile and efficient surface inspection tool. Various applications demonstrate the advantages of a navigated AFM even on samples hardly accessible with conventional instruments.
