Material systems, devices, and circuits, based on the manipulation of individual charges, spins, and photons in solid-state platforms are key for quantum technologies. The burgeoning field of quantum two-dimensional (2D) materials presents an emerging opportunity for the development of next-generation quantum technologies, while also pushing the boundaries of fundamental understanding in condensed matter. Our laboratory aims to create quantum functionality in 2D systems by combining fabrication and assembly techniques of 2D layers with atomically precise scanning probe microscopy.

In this talk, I will focus on scanning tunnelling microscopy and spectroscopy experiments aimed at creating novel moiré structures by twisting 2D layers, including the demonstration of reversible local response of domain wall networks in ferroelectric interfaces of marginally twisted WS2 bilayers. I will also discuss our progress in realizing quantum-confined devices in 2D semiconductors. 

Speaker: Adina Luican-Mayer, Associate Professor, University of Ottawa, Ontario
