Research Experience:
hjg “Design, fabrication and testing of a lab-on-chip multielectrode array for in-vitro measurements of action potentials in neural tissue.” , Center for Integrative Physiology, University of Edinburgh 

Thesis Project:
“Electron Transport Through Single Electron Devices”

The aim of this project is to study the electron transport through single electron devices. Primarily, this involves the fabrication of these devices as a three terminal gated platform for the study of the electron transport. Secondly, the research involves low noise electrical measurements in cryostatic conditions. We wish to accomplish room temperature operation of these devices.
The properties of the devices are affected by the single-electron charging energy and hence are strongly dependent on the molecules used. Control over the device properties is most significantly affected by the coupling of the devices electrode terminals and the molecular entities.
The success of this project may give rise to a new type of electronic component which can be used in numerous amounts of integrated circuits.
