Femtosecond science on-chip: Controlling non-equilibrium quantum transport in graphene heterostructures
Dr. James McIver, Prof. Dr. Andrea Cavalleri, Prof. Dr. Ludwig Mathey
We propose a comprehensive program in both experiment and theory aimed at engineering non-equilibrium quantum phases in graphene heterostructures and controlling the emergent transport properties in nanostructured optoelectronic devices. Non-equilibrium quantum phases will be induced via coherent light-matter interaction, with the central goal of creating a light induced topological insulator and a light induced superconducting state. Theoretically, this will be described by a numerical implementation of a dissipative Master equation approach. Collaborations with B2, B3, B9, C1 and C3 are envisioned.
