Quantum Materials

Project: Research

Description

The recently discovered topological phase has presented new possibilities for Quantum Materials: even the insulating state of matter exhibits a conductivity at the edges of certain physical systems and such conductive states are nontrivial and robust. Their unique behaviours not only enrich the world of low-dimensional physics, but also provide a platform for transformative technical innovations like quantum computation and communication. In the pursuit for such goals, the intrinsic material properties (e.g. mobility, anisotropy, conductivity etc.) are important indicators and the artificially synthesized hybrid systems (e.g. multilayers, hybrid systems, and nano-structures etc.) are valuable models for studying the topologically protected quantum phenomena and could potentially be used as actual components for an eventual logic or memory device.
