Running Projects:

Title: Spectral and transport properties of quantum materials: application to disordered conventional and artificial condensed-matter systems (ENACT)

(PID2020-120614GB-I00)

Funding Agency: Ministerio de Economía Industria y Competitividad (MICINN).

PIs:  Dario Bercioux & Miguel A. Cazalilla 

Closing: 30.09.2024

Summary

This project addresses various theoretical aspects of quantum materials. We will investigate spectral and transport phenomena in conventional and artificial condensed-matter systems.

The  three main research lines are: 

1. Analysis of two-dimensional materials with particular emphasis on twisted layered systems.

2. Investigation of spectral and transport properties of the so-called Volkov-Pankratov states in topological systems.

3. Spin dynamics in curved space.

4. Analysis of spin and correlation effects in the analogue electron simulator.

Summary

This project addresses various theoretical aspects of quantum transport in solid states systems with special focus on hybrid structures, superconductivity, and low-dimensional materials. 

We have identified several open research problems in these fields that form the bulk of the present project. 

The project encompasses issues related to mesoscopic physics, quantum transport in hybrid structures, superconductivity, and to the emerging research field of electron quantum optics.

The  three main research lines are: 

1. Non-equilibrium properties of superconducting structures with spin-dependent fields.

2. Transport properties of hybrid structures.

3. Electron quantum optics in graphene and topological insulators.
