Project Description

The advent of two-dimensional (2D) materials such as graphene, combined with recent technical advances to assemble them in heterostructures with atomic precision, has led to the birth of a promising new platform to study exotic states of matter and to design new quantum technologies. However, the low dimensionality and the small lateral size of these new crystals constitute major obstacles to their study. Consequently, several crucial properties of 2D materials, such as their nuclear magnetic resonance and susceptibility - which are strongly affected by the correlated states in these materials, have not yet been measured. To remedy this situation, we propose to develop new measurement techniques without electrical contacts, which exploit the high sensitivity of superconducting resonators. Based on type II and high-temperature superconductors, these micro-resonators will probe the exotic properties of 2D materials under strong magnetic fields and over a wide range of temperatures. These innovative tools, in addition to their intrinsic commercial potential, will accelerate and greatly expand the study of 2D materials, and that of quantum nanomaterials in general.
