Welcome to the Conesa Boj Lab

The ConesaBoj Lab is part of the Department of Quantum Nanoscience, in the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at the Delft University of Technology.

The main scientific driver of our group is the understanding, controlling, and exploiting of the exciting physical phenomena arising in quantum materials such as two-dimensional (van der Waals) nanomaterials and assessing their potential for applications from optoelectronics to nanophotonics.

The functionalities of quantum materials, and the devices built upon them, are highly sensitive to properties such as dimensionality, material combinations, and the type of edge structures they exhibit. Realising the exciting potential of these materials for technological applications hence demands understanding in detail these functionalities down to the single atom scale. With this motivation, we adopt a synergetic approach by combining in-house top-down and bottom-up nanofabrication techniques with state-of-the-art transmission electron microscopy and cutting-edge data analysis techniques.

We are looking for talented and passionate Master students and PhDs. You can find more information here! (more info)

We are grateful for funding from Delft University of Technology, the European Research Council, NWO, the Frontiers in Nanoscience program, the Kavli Foundation, and the Topconsortia voor Kennis en Innovatie
