Non-Invasive Imaging of Nanoscale Electronic Transport

Project description

New technology for imaging of nanoscale electronic transport

The development of modern electronics and communication appliances relies on the variety of physical effects produced by the electronic transport in nanostructures and thin films. However, the standard process to investigate electronic transport does not deliver any information on the nanoscale current distribution in such structures. The EU-funded IMAGINE project will exploit sensitive magnetic microscopy to reach current distribution in nanostructures with ~15 nm spatial resolution. The method relies on the recent technique of scanning diamond magnetometry, which exploits quantum metrology to reach very elevated sensitivity and recently has allowed increased passive analysis of magnetic surfaces. The project aims to establish a robust new technology for non-invasive imaging of electronic transport in nanostructures.
