Ultrahigh Resolution Spectroscopy of Electronic Systems

To support further development and enhancement of a novel condensed matter physics measurement technique, known as "time domain capacitance spectroscopy," to provide unprecedented high-resolution measurements of low dimensional electron systems. The increased sensitivity in instrument capabilities, combined with an attractive postdoctoral fellowship program, will allow scientists to, for the first time, achieve temperature limited energy resolution in the milliKelvin regime, expand the use of the method to other materials beyond gallium arsenide, and characterize individual electrons.
