Exciton Condensation in Bilayer Semiconductor Systems
Project Description

Using quantum mechanics and solid state physics to explain experimental results of bound electron-hole pairs in a solid hetero-structure. Electron-hole pairs can form excitons and condensation states. In bilayer semiconductor systems, such as layered semiconducting MoS2 and WSe2 crystals, transport measurement at cryogenic temperatures may display interesting exciton condensation behaviors.
