Quantum Nano-Electronics Training

Objective

Q-NET will provide initial training in the general field of Quantum Nano-Electronics, in particular spintronics, molecular electronics, single-electronics, quantum dots and nanowires, nano-cooling. The recruited researchers will be trained to state-of-the-art technologies of nanofabrication, near-field microscopies, transport measurement under extreme conditions (low temperatures, magnetic field, radio-frequency irradiation) and theoretical calculations. Ultimate detectors, innovative local probes, new metrological standards, on chip micro-coolers will be developed. 25 key scientists from 8 different institutions will interact as a consistent training staff monitored by the supervisory board by reference to a 8-task detailed program. The 16 trained young researchers will be at the ESR level for 93%. The training will be implemented through systematic secondments of young researchers from one partner to several academic and private partners. The project website will be set-up to support the training strategy and the tracing of results and IPR. It will be animated by the recruited researchers under the supervision of the coordinator. Q-NET will organize sessions of the European School On Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies (ESONN) devoted to Quantum Nano-Electronics, combining both theoretical and practical training. Annual special training sessions will be organized, covering seven complementary domains such as ethics, project management, IPR, communication skills ... The consortium involves most of the leading groups in the domain which contributed these last ten years to the European leadership in Quantum Nano-Electronics. Q-NET will significantly contribute to meet the needs of the industry in terms of highly-skilled and open-minded scientists for leading the competition in “Beyond C-MOS“ Nano-Electronics.
