The European Research Council has awarded Prof. Justin Ye of the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials a Consolidator Grant of 2 million euros. Ye’s project represents an exciting new research field that is attracting the attention of many research groups around the world. He will develop electronic devices based on a tunable ion-gated interface for novel functionalities.
The transistors are not conventional ones. They are built by merging the disciplines of electrochemistry, solid state physics, and device physics. By combining newly synthesized ionic materials and a well-defined interface optimized by surface analysis techniques, the ion-gated device operates with very high efficiency so that quantum phases of superconductivity and ferromagnetism can be controlled and utilized as electronic functionalities.
Ye's research project, entitled "Ion-gated interfaces for quantum phase devices ', will run for 5 years. ERC Consolidator Grants are designed to support researchers at the stage at which they are consolidating their own independent research team or programme.
