ThErmAl Probes Of fractional quantum hall Transport

Project description

Research could boost understanding of collective electron behaviour

The fractional quantum Hall (FQH) effect is a collective behaviour in a 2D system of electrons that is subject to strong magnetic fields and extremely low temperatures. Currently, detailed thermal transport experiments are conducted to probe the properties of FQH edges, which are deemed viable experimental platforms for studying a wide range of quantum phenomena. Despite progress in the field, many questions on edge energy propagation, equilibration and redistribution remain unclear. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the TEAPOT project will introduce new observables – heat, mixed and delta-T noise – for probing disordered transport on FQH edges. Project results could increase fundamental understanding of strongly correlated quantum behaviour on the nanoscale.
