PCTS- Electronic Properties of Graphene

Fri, Oct 8, 2010, 9:30 am to Sat, Oct 9, 2010, 5:00 pm
The program will focus on the properties of graphene, a single-atom-thick layer of carbon. Discovered in 2004, graphene has quickly become one of the most active research fronts in condensed matter physics, owing to its fundamental importance, as well as the potential it offers to future nano-electronics applications.
Audience: Faculty, Postdocs, graduate students

Vladimir Falko, Lancaster University, Lancaster UK "Electronic properties of bilayer graphene, from 'high' to 'low' energies"

Thu, Oct 7, 2010, 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
I shall describe rich physics peculiar for elctrons in bilayer graphene at various scales of excitation energies. Using tight binding model for electrons in bilayers, I'll show that electrons in bilayer graphene (BLG) are Berry phase 2pi quasiparticles, with peculiar Landau level spectrum manifested in charactersitic sequencing of quantum Hall...

Boris Altshuler, Columbia University "Anderson localization: looking forward"

Thu, Sep 30, 2010, 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Localization of the eigenfunctions of quantum particles in a random potential was discovered by P.W. Anderson more than 50 years ago. In spite of its respectable maturity and rather intensive theoretical and experimental studies this field is by far not exhausted.
