Cooperative mechanisms in coupled motor proteins transport
Subcellular cargos are transported by enzyme molecules called molecular motors by using the chemical energy from hydrolysis of ATP and performing mechanical work in non-equilibrium. Certain motors tread on cytoskeleton ...
Magneto-optical spectroscopy of metallic carbon nanotubes
Through polarization-dependent magneto-optical absorption spectroscopy, the magnetic susceptibility anisotropy for metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes has been extracted and found to be up to 4x greater than values for ...
Doping induced quantum phase transition in the itinerant ferromagnet scandium indium
Examination of quantum critical points of itinerant electron systems will aid with understanding of d-electron magnetism that exhibits both local and itinerant characteristics in different families of compounds. Doping-induced ...
5/2 state in high election density gallium arsenide/aluminum gallium arsenide quantum well
This Master of Science Thesis is concerned with electronic transport in the higher Landau levels (LL) in a two-dimensional electron system, where novel many-body electronic phases have been observed. Particular attention ...
Electron dynamics in single-walled carbon nanotubes
This thesis looks at three aspects of electron dynamics in single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs): electron spin resonance (ESR), conductivity, and the dynamic Franz-Keldysh effect (DFKE). The temperature dependence of ESR ...
Quantum transport in inverted indium arsenide/gallium antimonide composite quantum wells
We present a comprehensive study of low temperature quantum transport in double gated InAs/GaSb composite quantum wells. Recently, it has been proposed that this system in inverted regime should exhibit the topologically ...
