Chalmers University, of Technology
Gothenburg, Sweden

Chalmers University of Technology conducts research and offers education in technology, science, shipping and architecture with a sustainable future as its global vision. Chalmers is well-known for providing an effective environment for innovation and has 13 departments. The Graphene Flagship, an FET Flagship initiative by the European Commission, is coordinated by Chalmers. At Chalmers, the newly founded Excellence Initiative Nano coordinates research on the unique chemical and physical phenomena that prevail at very small dimensions, and promotes the development of technologies that utilise these phenomena.

More specifically, the work proposed in “UltraFastNano” is going to be conducted at the Department for Microtechnology and Nanoscience in the Applied Quantum Physics group, where theoretical research in this field is carried out. We have a long-standing experience in quantum transport at the nanoscale, in particular focussing on the dynamics and thermodynamics of these systems.

PI-Chalmers : Janine SPLETTSTÖSSER, is a  professor in theoretical physics in the Applied Quantum Physics Group of the Department for Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers. She received her PhD “with distinction”, from Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa (Italy) and Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany) within a co-tutoring agreement. After a postdoc at Université de Genève (Switzerland) in the group of M. Büttiker, she led a research group at the RWTH Aachen in Germany from 2009-2013. After having received a Wallenberg Academy Fellowship in 2013 she moved to Chalmers. Janine Splettstoesser is an expert in transport in low-dimensional systems, focussing on frequency-dependent phenomena in the quantum regime.
