CM Seminar: Thomas Scaffidi – Spread and Erase – How Electron Hydrodynamics Can Eliminate the Landauer-Sharvin Resistance

BRIM 311 2355 East Mall, Vancouver, British Columbia

Thomas Scaffidi - University of California Irvine Title: Spread and Erase - How Electron Hydrodynamics Can Eliminate the Landauer-Sharvin Resistance Abstract: What is the ultimate limit of conductance of a metallic device of lateral size W? In the ballistic limit, the answer is the Landauer-Sharvin conductance, which is associated with an abrupt reduction of the […]
