Electronic and electromagnetic waves in small systems: Transport propertiesSupervisor: prof. RNDr. Peter Markoš, DrSc.
This page shows details on the project. The primary projects are displayed together with a list of sub-projects.
|Project description:||In this project, transport of the electron and electromagnetic waves will be examined theoretically in the mesoscopic systems and meta-materials. The electron transport in the mesoscopic systems will be examined in order to understand the wave nature of the electron propagation and the role of the electron-electron interaction. We wiil mainly focus on the quantum Hall effect in graphen, persistent currents in mesoscopic rings, and coherent conductance in mesoscopic wires and nanocolumns. As to the electromagnetic waves in the metamaterials, we will focus on the one-dimensional photonic crystals with alternating sign of the refraction index and on the transport properties of the surface-electromagnetic waves at the interface with the abruptly-changing sign of the permitivity and/or permeability. The wave propagation will be described by the scattering-matrix and transfer-matrix methods. The electron-electron interaction will be included by the configuration-interaction, quantum-Monte-Carlo, and DMRG methods.|
