Electrical control of single spin, photon, and charge of NV center in diamond


Norikazu Mizuochi, Institute for Chemical Research, Kyoto University

NV centers in diamond has been significantly interested in the field of quantum information and sensing with high sensitivity. Recently, we focus on researches of an electrical control of single spin, a single photon emission, and charges of the NV center.

Inducing lattice strain in graphene for modulation of electron transport


Akinobu Kanda, Univerwsity of Tsukuba

Graphene is a two dimensional crystal of carbon atoms. Among a lot of fascinating properties of graphene, our research focuses on the effect of lattice strain on electron transport.

Controlling Phonon Propagation of monolayer graphene by structural defects

Takayuki Arie, Osaka Prefecture University

Since phonons are the main heat carrier in carbon nanomaterials, we have been investigating the change in heat transport in the materials by modifying their structures such as isotopic heterostructures [1,2].

Resonant Zener tunnelling via zero-dimensional states in a semiconductor diode

October 11, 2016

Nobuya Mori, Osaka University

We conduct theoretical research based on quantum transport device simulation.  Collaborating with Professors Amalia Patané and Laurence Eaves at the University of Nottingham, we have recently demonstrated a new type of Zener tunnelling that involves the resonant transmission of electrons through zero-dimensional (0D) states in a semiconductor resonant-tunnelling diode (RTD) [1].
