Competition of Topological and Nematic Phases in the Two-dimensional Electron Gas
Speaker: Gábor Csáthy, Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Birck Nanotechnology Center, Purdue University
Time: December 1, 2016 2:00 - 3:00
Location: Hennings 318
The two-dimensional electron gas is a prototypical strongly correlated system which, over the years, has contributed to the development of novel concepts in condensed matter physics such as fractional charge, composite fermions, edge states, Pfaffian correlations, non-Abelian statistics, and topological order. The two-dimensional electron gas hosted in GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures has a particularly rich set of ground states. Well-known examples...
