Single Exciton Transistor based on van der Waals Heterostructures

Project description

Spinning into control: enhancing electron–photon interactions with excitons

Interactions between matter and light on the scale of single atoms or electrons and photons have opened the door to a greater understanding of quantum phenomena as well as a wealth of applications. When it comes to quantum information processing, the interaction is necessary to the control, integrity and distance required for a super-efficient data traffic highway. However, electron–photon interaction is weaker than desired. Excitons, strongly bound electron-hole pairs, interact quite strongly with light. The EU-funded SingExTr project is harnessing the unique properties of excitons in single-exciton transistors for excitonic transport with just the right properties for a wealth of applications.
