Research topics

Electronic properties of mesoscopic systems, disorder, interactions and phase coherence in condensed matter, physics in low dimension, superconductivity, hybrid systems, graphene, physics of Dirac points,artificial graphenes (microwaves, ultracold atoms, polaritons, etc.)


As the field increases, the Landau level spacing increases (diamagnetism), the Landau degeneracy increases (eB/h). This is possible thanks to the edges : the energy of the edge states decreases (edge states are paramagnetic)  and the edge states become progressively bulk Landau states.
