Tailoring MAGnetic order on topological Insulator surfaces towards QUantum Electronics

Lector: prof. Ing. Jan Čechal, Ph.D.

Institution: Brno University of Technology, CEITEC VUT

Field: Advanced Materials and Nanosciences


About the project

Realizing large-scale systems for quantum information processing necessitates significant improvements in the current or discovery of new materials. Topological insulators (TI) are novel materials that in the proximity of an array of magnetic atoms are expected to show exotic quantum properties, e.g. host dissipation less charge and spin currents, paving way to large-scale quantum informatics. Our main goal is to fabricate such magnetic TI through on-surface synthesis and study their properties.


Why science?

I do want to make a change and help improve the world, that is my driving force. Science allows me to combine analytical thinking with creativity while fulfilling my craving for understanding the world around.


What do I like most about Brno

Brno is big enough to feel the city vibe and small enough to feel cozy and walk or cycle your way around. It is the city of electron microscopy too. It is full of young people, interesting events and also opportunities.
