Research centred on the development of understanding of quantum aspects of condensed matter, from atomic Bose-Einstein condensates to semiconductor quantum dots
AMOP is a new research group at the Cavendish. The research is centred on the development of understanding of quantum aspects of condensed matter, from atomic Bose-Einstein condensates to semiconductor quantum dots.
The group is anticipated to have a high turnover of projects and experiments, in response to the expected rapid advances expected in the area. Facilities have been recently refurbished to accommodate this cutting-edge and exciting physics.

From the artificial atom to the Kondo-Anderson model: Orientation-dependent magnetophotoluminescence of charged excitons in InAs quantum dots (American Physical Society, 2013-05)We present a magnetophotoluminescence study on neutral and charged excitons confined to InAs/GaAs quantum dots. Our investigation relies on a confocal microscope that allows arbitrary tuning of the angle between the applied ...
(American Physical Society, 2013-03)We investigate the emission properties of excitons in GaAs nanowires containing quantum disks formed by structural alternation between the zinc-blende and wurtzite phases, by means of temperature-dependent photoluminescence. ...
Role of the dielectric mismatch on the properties of donors in semiconductor nanostructures bounded by air (American Institute of Physics, 2012)We compute by envelope function calculations the binding energy EB of donor atoms in thin slabs of semiconductor bounded by air, accounting for the dielectric mismatch between air and the semiconductor. We detail how EB ...
