A graduate-level class taught by Sergey Frolov in the Spring of 2013 at the University of Pittsburgh
Quantum Transport course development supported in part by the National Science Foundation under grant DMR CAREER 1252962.
Quantum transport describes phenomena for which it is essential to consider conducting electrons in solids as quantum particles. This course will take an experimental point of view focusing on low temperature electrical measurements. Materials science, nanotechnology and measurement techniques central to the field will be reviewed. Quantum devices to be covered include low-dimensional systems such as quantum dots (0D), quantum point contacts (1D) and two-dimensional electron gases (2D), as well as three-dimensional mesoscopic devices such as single-electron transistors, Aharonov-Bohm interferometers and superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs). The fundamentals of quantum transport such as Coulomb blockade, weak localization and Quantum Hall effects will be followed by topics of high current interest, namely solid state quantum bits (based on spin, magnetic flux and electric charge) and topological phases in condensed matter (quantum spin Hall effect, topological insulators, Majorana fermions).
