Part of this research was performed in the framework of the DFG Research Unit FOR2202 "Neutrino Mass Determination by Electron Capture in 163Ho, ECHo" (funding under DU 1334/1-1 and DU 1334/1-2, EN 299/7-1 and EN 299/7-2, EN 299/8-1, GA 2219/2-1 and GA 2219/2-2). The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, under Grant Agreement no 824109. F. Mantegazzini acknowledges support by the Research Training Group HighRR (GRK 2058) funded through the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG. We would like to thank George Seidel, Andreas Reiser, and Thomas Wolf for fruitful discussions and help in the preparation of the samples. Furthermore we thank the cleanroom team at the Kirchhoff Institute for Physics for technical support during device fabrication.
