WELCOME TO S3 NANO
This 4 year network “Few spin solid state nano-systems” started on the 1st of January 2012 and brings together an exceptionally strong group of world leading experts in nano-science and technology in order to achieve breakthroughs in understanding and successful utilisation of nanoscale systems in future devices. The focus of the consortium is on few spin nano-systems in solid-state materials including III-V semiconductors and Carbon-based structures: carbon nano-tubes, graphene and diamond.
The network will deliver top international level multidisciplinary training to 11 early stage researchers and 5 experienced researchers. The training will be provided by the world top class research and industry institutions from 4 European countries: UK, Germany, Switzerland and The Netherlands. Full members of the network are Universities of Sheffield, Cambridge, TU Munich, Konstanz, ETH Zurich, Basel, TU Delft, and industrial partners Attocube Systems AG and Leiden Cryogenics B.V. Associated partners of the network are Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory, Element Six, and EPSRC National Centre for III-V Semiconductor Technologies.
The extensive training programme will benefit from 4 project meetings, 2 schools and 2 conferences open for participation for the whole scientific community. All meetings will bring together researchers from inside the network as well as invited participants from academia and industry. Additional workshops for training in complementary skills will be offered for ESRs and ERs at the project meetings.
