Research-Topic: Explore atoms/molecules for implementing quantum coherent control
About us: The IBS Center for Quantum Nanoscience (QNS) is a basic research center located in the heart Seoul, South Korea. Our working language is English, 50% of our researchers come from outside of Korea, and 55% of our researchers are women. QNS is laying the foundation for future quantum technologies by exploring the use of quantum behavior atom by atom with highest precision. We focus on the fabrication and exploration of quantum nanostructures while aiming at achieving full control over the quantum states of the constituent atoms and molecules. QNS has become a leading center in the field of quantum-coherent nanoscience by filling our world-class facility with ground-breaking tools and inquisitive minds immersed in a culture of exploration.
About the Project: Quantum coherent control and readout of atomic/molecular spins on surfaces have been demonstrated in all electrical fashion using electron spin resonance in a scanning tunneling microscope (ESR-STM). While there are an infinite number of atomic/molecular spins available on surfaces, ESR-STM studies have so far only been applied to three different atoms and a molecule on the same surface of MgO/Ag(100). Using ESR-STM, we plan to investigate atomic/molecular species on a variety of substrates, including different insulating layers (e.g. NaCl), superconductors, and semiconductors.”
