Sammanfattning : One of the most central concepts in condensed matter physics is the electronic band structure. Although band theory was established more than 80 years ago, recent developments have led to new insights that are formulated in the framework of topological band theory. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In this thesis some new ideas to perform the analysis of Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems (SCES) are developed. In particular the use of non-linear canonical transformations is considered thoroughly. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis analyses the possibilities offered by the representation of quantum mechanical operators in terms of Majorana fermions. These objects can be imagined as algebraic constituents of the fermionic degrees of freedom, allowing for a different representation of many Hamiltonians. LÄS MER
4. Charge Transport in Semiconductor Nanowire Quantum Devices: From Single Quantum Dots to Topological Superconductors
Sammanfattning : 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.

Sammanfattning : In this Licentiate Thesis we will study the topological phases of Z2 and Z3 symmetric chains. We will present the Kitaev chain, a Z2 symmetric model of spinless fermions, and obtain all the eigenstates of the model with an open boundary condition which hosts Majorana zero modes in the topological phase.
