Quantum Oscillations in Low Dimensional System
Project Description

Basic quantum mechanical calculations for transport in low dimensional quantum system are used to explain the recently discovered novel transport measurements in low dimensional systems, such as graphene, atomically thin black phosphorous and Transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDC). Close collaboration between theory and experiment is expected.
