This is an image of a phase transition in bilayer 2DEG

Magnetoresistance data in a bilayer 2D electron system showing a phase transition between a superfluid-like state to a pair of Fractional Quantum Hall fluids.

Part of the widespread interest in nanometer-sized systems is motivated by their capability to combine and hybridize mechanical and electronic properties of materials at the nanoscale. The long term goals of our research are to understand at a fundamental level, and harness into applications, the interplays of structure, electronic degrees of freedom, and correlated electronic phases in nano and mesoscopic systems.

Four specific projects on which we are currently working are: (1) Quantum electronic properties of nanosystems under strain, (2) Heat transport in graphene (relativistic-like electrons), (3) Nano-electro-mechanical sensors (NEMS) based on carbon nanotubes and graphene, (4) Electronic and magnetic properties of Topological Insulators.
