  1. 1. Charge Transport in Semiconductor Nanowire Quantum Devices: From Single Quantum Dots to Topological Superconductors

    Author : Mingtang Deng; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Multiple Andreev reflection; SQUID; Proximity effect; the Josephson effect; Cooper pair; the Kondo effect; the Zeeman effect; Quantum dot; InSb; Nanowires; Transport; Fysicumarkivet A:2013:Deng; Majorana bound state; Yu-Shiba-Rusinov state; Andreev bound state;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on charge transport in semiconductor InSb nanowire quantum devices, including the electron transport, the hole transport, and the Cooper pair transport. Devices in which InSb semiconductor nanowire quantum dots are coupled with normal metals, superconductors or the proximity effect induced topological superconductors are fabricated and measured.

  2. 2. Quantum dynamics of spin active and d-wave Josephson junctions

    Author : Jens Harro Michelsen; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Josephson effect; macroscopic quantum tunneling; high-temperature superconducvity; superconducting junctions; spin-active junctions; nonequilibrium superconductivity; Andreev bound states;

    Abstract : Conventional tunnel Josephson junctions form the basic building blocks of superconducting electronics. Their operation is based on comparatively simple dynamics where the superconducting phases across the junctions is the only dynamical degree of freedom. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling mesoscopic unconventional superconductors

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Patric Holmvall; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phase transitions; Andreev bound states; quasiclassical theory; mesoscopic thin-films; spontaneous symmetry breaking; time-reversal symmetry; Unconventional superconductivity; translational symmetry;

    Abstract : High-temperature superconducting materials are often experimentally realized as thin films that can be patterned into devices operating in the mesoscopic regime. On this length scale, various finite-size and surface effects heavily influence the nature of the superconducting state, and can induce new ground states with spontaneously broken symmetries.
