Qiaoliang Bao named as a 2018 ANFF-VIC Technology Fellow
Qiaoliang Bao works at the nanoscale, trapping photons in atomically-thin, two-dimensional materials, where high binding energies create a quantum state known as a superfluid.
The aim is a new generation of superfluid transistors that will ‘switch’ using much less energy than conventional electronics.
Such work requires access to the best nanofabrication and characterisation facilities, and Qiaoliang’s team at Monash University’s Faculty of Engineering works closely with the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication (MCN), the flagship facility of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF).
Qiaoliang has been recently named as an ANFF-VIC Technology Fellow Ambassador. The program forges a strong Australian nanofabrication community, improves procedures, and creates ‘champions’ of ANFF facilities.
