Quantum transport and time-dependent dynamics of Dirac fermions


Abstract

Overarching goal is the investigation of phenomena arising from specific spin-momentum locking of Dirac-type fermions in graphene and in particular in topological insulators. We will explore in a spatially and time-resolved manner Dirac-like charge carrier dynamics in these systems subject to short pulses or external radiative driving. Further, at topological insulator surfaces, we will consider spin-related quantum transport effects due to spin-momentum locking and we will investigate “electron quantum optics” phenomena in these systems.
