Abstract:
My research focuses on the behavior of electrons (negatively charged particles repelling each other through the Coulomb force) confined in semiconductor crystals. Under special conditions the mutual Coulomb forces among the electrons can create novel emergent states of matter with remarkable properties. In this paper I will emphasize the conceptual framework of this field of research highlighting general phenomena and outstanding issues. The understanding of these novel, highly-correlated electronic states represents an important aspect of nanoscience and it is the basis for the invention of original and innovative practical devices. My research activity aims to achieve this goal.
