AIP Tour of FLEET Labs, RMIT

October 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Discover future electronics at RMIT

Join the AIP for a tour of FLEET labs at RMIT University

* 6PM Thursday 11 October
* Bldg 14 (cnr Franklin St and Swanson St)
* RMIT CBD Campus, Melbourne (MAP)

FLEET (the ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies) is using atomically thin, two-dimensional materials to create new, ultra-low energy electronics – addressing the growing energy being consumed by computing.

Join us for a tour of the experimental laboratories of FLEET researchers Prof Lan Wang, Dr Jian Zhen Ou, and Dr Torben Daeneke.

As part of the lab tour you will see how FLEET researchers investigate avenues towards dissipationless electrical transport.

In the FLEET electronics lab (L12) Professor Lan Wang leads investigations of electron and spin transport in various stacked van-der-Waals heterostructures using low-temperature, high magnetic field systems.

In the FLEET optics lab (L12) Professor Wang’s group is establishing a Magneto-Optic Kerr Effect (MOKE) system to investigate 2D ferromagnetism, and a photon-current system to investigate the photon current effect. Dr Jian zhen Ou and Dr Torben Daeneke are investigating plasmonics in 2D materials using scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM).

The RMIT Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility (L7) is where all of FLEET’s nanodevices are fabricated using high-quality electron microscopy and microanalysis equipment including Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEMs) and Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEMs) that can magnify up to 10 million times, sufficient to see atomic structure.

* 6.30–6.40PM Welcome and Introduction to FLEET (Professor Lan Wang)
* 6.40–7.30PM Tour of FLEET labs
* 7.30–8.30PM Wine and cheese

Parking is difficult in the CBD. We strongly recommend public transport. See parking advice online.

Public transport: the nearest train station is Melbourne Central, and there are trams on La Trobe St and Swanson St.

RSVP Spaces are limited. Please book at https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/aip-tour-of-fleet-labs-at-rmit-tickets-50678428544
