Metal-Insulator Transitions in Quantum Materials Heterostructures. Promotor: Prof.dr.ir. H.S.J. van der Zant (TNW).

This thesis is an experimental investigation of the physical properties of different transition metal oxide ultra-thin films. A common feature of these various materials and structures is that they exhibit a solid-state phase transition from a metallic to an insulating state, which is triggered upon changing sample composition, or by varying an external stimulus such as temperature, illumination or gas pressure. The experiments performed cover a broad spectrum of condensed matter, from material growth, structural characterisation and nanodevice fabrication to low-temperature magnetotransport, synchrotron microscopy and gas sensing.
