    • Carbon nanotube electromechanical systems: Non-linear dynamics and self-oscillation 

      Willick, Kyle (University of Waterloo, 2020-05-13)
      This thesis is motivated by the many sensing applications of carbon nanotube (CNT) nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS), both previous state-of-the-art demonstrations and proposed new uses. This research is particularly ...
    • Electron transport in semiconducting nanowires and quantum dots 

      Holloway, Gregory (University of Waterloo, 2017-01-10)
      Single electrons confined in electrostatic quantum dots are a promising platform for realizing spin based quantum information processing. In this scheme, the spin of each electron is encoded as a qubit, and can be manipulated ...
    • Quantum dot devices in silicon and dopant-free GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures 

      Buonacorsi, Brandon (University of Waterloo, 2021-01-29)
      Single spin quantum dot qubits in silicon are a promising candidate for a scalable quantum processor due to their long coherence times, compact size, and ease of integration into existing fabrication technologies. Realizing ...
    • Study of Surface Quantum Wells in InSb/AlInSb Heterostructures 

      Bergeron, Emma (University of Waterloo, 2019-01-24)
      The strong spin orbit coupling and large Lande g-factor of InSb compared to the other III-V semiconductors makes InSb an ideal choice for potential use in topological quantum computing with Majorana fermions. Furthermore, ...
