The physics and applications of semiconductor materials and devices. The interface between classical and quantum physics, particularly regarding the subject of chaotic dynamics. Novel applications of high magnetic fields in physics, chemistry, biochemistry and nanoscience. These experimental projects involve the use of high magnetic fields, low temperatures, and high-precision electrical and optical spectroscopy techniques.
In collaboration with colleagues at the University of Manchester, studies of the electronic properties of graphene-boron nitride tunnel transistors.
