Semiconductor research at the University of Oslo and a sneak peek into the nanoscale world of silicon
By Torunn Kjeldstad, from Light and Electricity from Novel Semiconductors (LENS), UiO
Summary: Far far away, as far as Forskningsparken subway station, the LENS (Light and Electricity from Novel Semiconductors) research group has a lab and cleanroom facility: the MiNa-lab. In this talk, I will give a short summary of which world problems we are trying to solve at the MiNa-lab, how we do it and which fancy tools we do it with. Maybe some of us are doing similar things to achieve different goals and could benefit from each other? I will also mention my own research: using world leading electron microscopy and macroscopic techniques to explore the nanoscale world of silicon in hope of finding cheaper and more efficient materials for energy harvesting.
