## Non Abelian Topological Systems

Non Abelian Topological Systems A fascinating property of many topological phases are collective fractionalized excitations which are highly non-local in nature. These carry fractions of the quantum numbers of the underlying microscopic degrees of freedom; e.g., they can carry fractions of the electron charge. In two spatial dimensions, such emergent excitations can have exotic exchange…

## Topological Phenomena in Non-equilibrium Systems

Topological Phenomena in Non-equilibrium Systems The efforts to realize new topological phases have focused mostly on equilibrium systems at zero temperature. The exciting possibility of realizing topological phenomena in out-of-equilibrium systems has been recently proposed in the context systems subjected to periodic external driving forces. A major advantage of this setup is the wider range…

## Transport in Strongly Corelated Systems

Transport in Strongly Corelated Systems Materials exhibiting strong electron-electron interactions pose some of the most outstanding puzzles in condensed matter physics. Notable examples are the cuprate high-temperature superconductors and heavy fermion metals. Transport measurements, and specifically the electronic conductivity tensor, are perhaps one of the most accessible probes for studying the properties of these materials.…

## Semiconductor sources for photonic quantum computing

Semiconductor sources for photonic quantum computing Photonics has emerged as an arena which holds great potential for realizing a quantum computer. The advanced technology of optical circuits allows for precision measurements and manipulations which are a crucial ingredient in any realization. More importantly, since photons are very weakly interacting, they have little sensitivity to decoherence,…
