QUANTUM NANOPHYSICS

PHYSICS 509

Quantum phenomena in nanostructures, emphasizing interference, dimensionality, and electron interactions. Uses current research topics to introduce fundamental building blocks of the subject, thereby providing in addition a background in solid-state physics. Topics covered may include: graphene, carbon nanotubes, and topological insulators; scanning tunneling microscopy; quantum point contacts and quantum dots; spintronics, single electronics, and molecular electronics; superconducting qubits; giant and colossal magnetoresistance; quantum Hall effect. Emphasis placed on phenomena observed in the last two decades. Instructor: Baranger
