Saroj Dash Research Group

Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience,
Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden
 
Our research aims for future generation of electronics that could become non-volatile, versatile, fast and capable of simultaneous data storage and processing; all with less energy consumption. We perform research and education on Electronics, Spintronic and Quantum physics with nanodevices fabricated on Graphene, 2D semiconductors, van der Waals heterostructures of 2D materials, semiconductor nanostructures, Topological Insulators and Weyl semimetals. We fabricate nanoelectronic devices in the state of the art clean room and use sensitive electronic measurement techniques in presence of magnetic fields to exploit the spin and quantum properties of electrons.

Research Facility

Nanofabrication Laboratory: Our research is well supported by excellent nanofabrication and characterization facility available at Chalmers. The department houses a 1240 m2 of cleanroom space with state-of-the-art research equipment providing a broad platform for the development and testing of new ideas in nanoscience.




Quantum and Spin transport measurement facilities are available with variable temperature (1.9 - 400 K) cryostats and magnetic fields of 1 - 14 Tesla.



The research is funded by EU Graphene Flagship, EU FlagEra, Swedish Research Council (VR), and Chalmers Excellence Initative Nano
