(2017-10-13)Non-Abelian excitations are sought after because of the promise they hold for topological quantum computation. However, in spite of many proposals of systems in which they can occur intrinsically, observation has proved ...
(2018-05-15)Lattice-mismatched heteroepitaxy is present in the growth of any thin-film heterostructure, and has inevitable consequences on the nature of film growth. A mismatch in the lattice parameter between two materials leads to ...
(2017-08-14)Macroscopic quantum tunneling is a process by which a macroscopic object, rather than a single electron, tunnels between two macroscopically distinct quantum states. In this dissertation, we will present the study of ...
(2017-04-21)This dissertation focuses on the probing of physics governing the electronic and structural properties of topological materials. In three-dimensional topological insulators, the native substitutional defects result in a ...
Spectroscopic studies of high-temperature superconductors on planar tunnel junction devices and nanofabricated point contact junctions (2016-11-29)Since the discovery of high-temperature superconductors (HTS), there has been lots of effort to study their physical properties. Two powerful methods for this investigation are tunneling spectroscopy and point contact ...
