April 2013 – Hydrogen dangling bonds are highly reactive and their selective exposure on hydrogenated Si(001) using scanning probes is developing as a powerful lithography to pattern molecules and atoms. We have found that hydrogen is more weakly bound along the centre of Haiku stripes, thus offering a new, fully scalable thermodynamic route to produce…

June 2012 – Measuring the piezoresistance in p-type silicon up to 3GPa, we found it to decrease with compressive stress beyond the predicted saturation. This result has potential implications for the Si technology roadmap. Collaboration with Ecole Polytechnique Palaiseau and IEMN. Article featured in EE Times News&Analysis. Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 256801 (2012)
