Prof. Adrian Bachtold
Adrian Bachtold is a professor at The Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) in Barcelona. He obtained his PhD from the university of Basel. The activities of his group focus on mechanical resonators based on carbon nanotubes, graphene, and semiconductor monolayers. The aim of the group is to take advantage of the exceptional sensing capabilities of these resonators to study physical phenomena in extreme regimes that have not been explored thus far, because conventional measurement methods lack sensitivity. The work is highly interdisciplinary with possible implications in quantum science, optomechanics, nanoscience, condensed matter, and low-temperature physics. Adrian Bachtold is fellow of the American Physical Society.
