Last week I have started my secondment in PICO group, from Aalto University in Helsinki.
My purpose here is to learn how to grow a very thin and smooth aluminium oxide layer on top of an aluminium thin layer. After this, I would like to improve the design of my samples and write them here. For that, I will first have the chance to use their evaporators and later the Crossbeam for electron beam lithography.
I will work under the supervision of Joonas Peltonen, Jukka Pekola and with the help of other PhD and master students with long experience using this equipment. I'm thankful to all of them for their help and support during my secondment.
Finally, I also will have time to learn about the principal research topics here as I will discuss with every PhD and master student about their projects.
