Electrical Probe Stations
We have two electrical probe stations that allow us to measure longitudinal and transverse resistances in Hall bar devices using a lock-in technique. Both setups are complemented with a constant ac/dc current source, a pulse generator (1-100 ns, -/+50V), a high voltage source (<1.1 kV), an arbitrary waveform generator, and a high speed advanced oscilloscope.
Optical Microscope & 2D Material Transfer System
The 2D-heterostructure transfer system allows the transfer of exfoliated layered materials onto surfaces of various substrates and consists of fully motorized micro-manipulators with a total of 8 degrees of freedom and operate under a high resolution microscope with variable substrate temperature (from room temperature up to around 150ºC).
Being part of ICMAB, our research group has access to all the Scientific and Technical services of the Institute and those of the neighbouring institutes integrated within the Barcelona Nanocluster in Bellaterra (BNC-b), a research network that includes the UAB, the CSIC (ICMAB, IMB-CNM and ICN2) and IRTA, part of the UAB Research Park of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (PRUAB) and the ALBA Synchrotron.
Thin Film Deposition Laboratory
We have a dual-chamber magnetron sputtering tool with DC and RF deposition capabilities. The chambers are dedicated to metal and oxide deposition, respectively, with a separate load lock. We can deposit from two different targets simultaneously (co-deposition) in both chambers, and they can operate independently.
