Facilities

Renovations are underway for our permanent labs! In the meantime, we have a temporary space in which we have set up sample preparation and electronics workbenches. Between this lab and the Toronto Nanofabrication Centre, we have everything we need to take raw materials like graphite and hexagonal boron nitride and turn them into complex multi-layered 2D electronic devices for investigating exotic electronic behavior.

Our measurement cryostats on are the way. Once these are in place, we will be able to measure electronic phenomena down to 10-2 K and in magnetic fields up to 12 T. In these extreme conditions, we will search for new physics and seek to understand what drives electronic ground states in a variety of 2D systems.
