Dr. M. Fernando Gonzalez-Zalba is a Research Scientist at the Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory. He joined HCL after receiving his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2013.
During his PhD he worked on developing high-frequency techniques to detect single atom impurities in silicon nano-structures (e.g. Nano Letters 14(10), 5672 (2014)).
He continued to work in silicon nano-structures after joining HCL, where he is investigating state-of-the-art silicon nanowire transistors in the framework of the FP7 program TOLOP (Agreement No. 318397), co-manages the project and leads one of the work packages.
He recently demonstrated a gate-based charge sensor for silicon QIP which operates at unprecedented levels of sensitivity (Nature Comm. 6, 6084 (2015).
