Variable-Temperature Measurements of Nanostructure Transport Properties

7 closed-cycle cryostats set up for measuring the thermal and electrical transport properties of 1-D

Use assembling techniques such as dielectrophoresis and nanomanipulation to position individual nanowires or tubes on Transport Discovery Platforms, which permit temperature-dependent measurements of electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and Seebeck coefficient. 

For thin-film thermal property measurements, we built a time-domain thermoreflectance pump-probe system capable of measuring thermal transport in thin films ~10 nm thick, from room temperature to 10 K.
