Quantum Device Physics Laboratory
Welcome to the Quantum Device Physics Laboratory.As electrical components grows smaller and smaller today's technology will some day reach a limit when the description of the devices are no longer valid. Quantum mechanical effects such as electron tunnelling will change the properties of the device. To solve this problem we look at the possibility to use the quantum mechanical effects when designing devices. This can lead to totally novel devices such as the most sensitive magnetometer available, the SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device), the most sensitive electrometer available, the SET (Single Electron Transistor) and the most sensitive bolometer available, the CEB (Cold-Electron Bolometer). Our research ranges from device fabrication in one of the most "state of the art" university cleanrooms in the world to ultra-sensitive microwave and DC measurements in 3He dilution cryostats and application of these devices for Cosmology Experiments to search for mysterious Dark Energy and Dark Matter.
