International collaborations are an important component of PCCM's research and education. This activity is supported with resources provided as part of Princeton's institutional commitment to PCCM.
The following PCCM collaborations highlight the truly global outreach of PCCM to the world research community:
PCCM electronic materials collaboration include working with H. W. Zandbergen of Delft U. Netherlands in the area of high resolution electron microscopy specializing in the observation of long range and short range structural distortions and chemical ordering in novel materials and working with Watauchi at Yamanashi University on floating zone crystal growth.
In the area of integrated self-assembled nanostructures, a collaboration with ESIEE has been established to combine block copolymer nanopatterning with state-of-the-art top-down etching techniques for the fabrication of MEMS devices.
The PCCM research focus on Quantum control in semiconductor nanostructure has promoted researchers in Europe and Japan with research members of IRG-D. This includes activities with DiVincenzo, who is now directing a major research effort on semiconductor spin qubits at Juelich University. G. Burkard at Konsatnz University working with PCCM to develop a theory of quantum control based on Landau-Zener physics at singlet-triplet anti- crossings in quantum dots. Prof. Tarucha’s group in Japan shares a postdoc with research members of IG-D, which are actively trying to couple spin qubits to high-quality factor superconducting resonators.
