Theoretical Nanotechnology

The Theoretical Nanotechnology group works on quantum phenomena in nanostructures based on modern two-dimensional systems.    Key words are nonequilibrium and interactions.  Examples of recent work include the study of Coulomb drag in coupled graphene-based quantum dots, valleytronics and quantum interference in carbon-based nanostructures,  or topological correlation effects in atomically precise graphene nanoribbons.   We use many-body techniques (e.g., nonequilibrium Green’s functions) to study these phenomena, often in close collaboration with the Theoretical Nanoelectronics group.
