Research Project Title:

Transport Properties in 2D Materials

abstract:In materials where the carrier-carrier scattering time is the shortest timescale, hydrodynamics can be used to describe electron transport on long timescales. Also of interest are electron dynamics under the application of a magnetic field, including the Hall effect. Graphene has been used to study such dynamics and has been shown to be a good host of an electron fluid. I will extend previous research on magnetohydrodynamics to the quantum Hall effect regime.
