I am an experimental physicist with interests in:
  • Low temperature (mK) quantum transport in nanostructures
  • Novel electronic transport enabled by coupling phonons or photons into nanoscale devices
  • Developing advanced device architectures toward probing specific physical phenomena

My group's current research focus is on spin transport physics in narrow bandgap III-V nanowire quantum dot devices and phonon-mediated transport phenomena.

Burke_MultiWG_FalseColourFig. 1: Four independently addressable wrap-gated segments (orange) along an InAs nanowire (green). Nanowire source/drain and gate electrodes are shown in yellow. Colorized adaptation from Burke et al., NanoLett. 15 2836 (2015).

Burke_Heated_SideGate_FalseColour Fig. 2: Thermoelectric/Hot-carrier multi-gated device prototype. Side-gated (thin yellow electrodes) InAs nanowire (green). Local heaters (red/blue) are electrically insulated from the underlying source/drain electrodes (thick yellow) by a thin high-K layer. Unpublished.
