Postdoctoral Researcher

Piotr Kot

During his time as a PhD student, Piotr helped develop a state of the art ESR-STM capable of probing energies three times of what was demonstrated beforehand. With this STM he studied the effect of microwave radiation on the tunneling processes between two superconductors. Furthermore, he used ESR-STM to investigate the coupling between the electric field in the STM junction and the molecular spins probed in the experiment. His findings demonstrate a new way of controlling atomic spins and he hopes to use these findings to develop an atomic scale quantum computer at QNS. Aside from his research focus, Piotr is interested in spintronics and quantum information processing, and searches for applications where these two are combined.
