Zhuocong Xiao

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-01-57-00Zhuocong is a PhD student focusing on exploring graphene’s potential in spin-electronics. As well as supreme electrical, mechanical and thermal properties, graphene has also demonstrated unique spin-related advantages such as ultra long spin diffusion length and spin relaxation time, which makes it a promising candidate in spintronics.

Zhuocong studies the size effect by fabricating graphene devices of varying dimensions (down to 20nm) with multiple nano-fabrication techniques.

Before pursuing a PhD, Zhuocong completed an MEng in Electrical Engineering at the University of Cambridge.
