Research Interests and achievement
Updated on September 3, 2006

Despite of the interest in general area of experimental condensed matter physics, my research has been mainly devoted to the development of nano-devices and the study of quantum electronics last few years. Within quantum electronics part I studied the spin entanglement signal in a double quantum dot (DQD) system by manipulating the inter-dot coupling strength. Within the nano-device part I focus on the implementing photon detector in THz / MIR range with sensitivity up to single photon level.

After joining NTHU in 2006, my research interests switch to the studying of quantum interference phenomena of the low-dimensional electron system at low temperature. Quantum interference signal is constructed by ring like interfering paths of two-dimensional electron (2DEG) gas in ballistic regime and detected in the conductance by measuring Aharonov-Bohm (AB) oscillations. The AB interference signal provides us a tool to exploit the decoherence mechanism and the tunability of the interference pattern by the presence of nano-structure. These experiments are proposed to give the key information of the robustness of the coherence in quantum state and the possibility to built quantum interference device. For practical application, we will utilize the electron phase in AB effect and plasma oscillation in a QD embedded in the annulus of the ring to develop an extremely sensitive submillimeter photon detector operated at 0.3K.
