University College London
Research Project: Single Atom Devices with Controllable Electrical and Optical Properties
Supervisors: Neil Curson (UCL), Sarah Fearn (ICL)
Rebecca graduated from the University of Warwick with a degree in Mphys Physics in 2020. Her Masters project focused on characterising nitrogen-based defects in diamond using electron paramagnetic resonance. She also has research experience in the fields of biophysics and particle physics from summer projects completed during her degree. Rebecca is now based at the London Centre for Nanotechnology under the supervision of Neil Curson, using scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) to both pattern silicon with dopant atoms and characterise the resulting properties. This work will impact future integrated circuit technology, including advances in quantum computing.
