Recently, near-surface quantum wells with strong spin-orbit coupling have attracted a great deal of interest since they can be interfaced epitaxially with superconducting films and have proved as a robust platform for exploring mesoscopic and topological superconductivity. Find out how Javad uses a 12 Tesla Teslatron top loader system to study transport properties of such quantum wells, quantum Hall effect, Shubnikov de Haas mass measurements and spin orbit coupling in these two dimensional gas systems.
Javad Shabani is an Assistant Professor of Physics at New York University and a member of the Center for Quantum Phenomena. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 2011 and conducted post-doctoral research at Harvard University and University of California, Santa Barbara. His research interests are mainly on physics of low-dimensional semiconductors, mesoscopic superconductivity, topological superconductivity and developing voltage-controlled superconducting qubits. Shabani is an expert in epitaxial growth of quantum materials and developing hybrid devices for computation technolog
