Welcome to Quantum Nanoelectronics

Group Members

The Quantum Nanoelectronics is led by Prof. Atsufumi Hirohata based on spintronics and quantum transport. Our final goal is to fabricate a spintronic device, which has higher recording denisity and faster operation speed than the existing devices. This can be achieved in a combination of approaches; realisation of perfect spin polarisation in a new magnetic material (materials science) and investigation of spin-polarised electron current behaviours (electronics), both of which are based on fundamental physics theories. This research field, spintronics, is therefore, very challenging but very attracting.
