  • Aspects of transport in strongly correlated systems with gravity duals 

    Romero Bermudez, Aurelio (The Cavendish Laboratory, Department of Physics, University of Cambridge, 2017-01-10)
    In this thesis we consider various applications the gauge/gravity duality to study transport in strongly coupled systems. The main content is organized in three parts. In the first part we investigate the interrelation ...
  • Surface-acoustic-wave-defined dynamic quantum dots 

    Astley, Michael (Semiconductor Physics Group, Cavendish Laboratory, Universtity of Cambridge, 2008-07-08)
    The strain associated with a surface acoustic wave (SAW) propagating across a piezoelectric medium creates a travelling electric potential. Gallium Arsenide is such a piezoelectric material, and so SAWs can be used with ...
  • Acoustoelectric charge transport in quasi-one-dimensional systems 

    Cunningham, John (Department of Physics, University of Cambridge, 2000-05-09)
    The study of electron transport in mesoscopic systems has recently turned to the observation of time dependent single electron e ects, where the electron transport is frequency locked to an external potential. Such devices ...
  • Interacting atoms in time-dependent potentials and artificial gauge fields 

    Bilitewski, Thomas (Theory of Condensed Matter Group, Cavendish Laboratories, University of Cambridge, 2016-11-08)
    This thesis considers novel phenomena arising in the few and many-body physics of ultracold atomic gases. The specific models considered are motivated by recent experimental developments. A main focus will be the theoretical ...
