Mesoscopic phenomena in solids by B. L Alʹtshuler ( Book )
6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The physics of disordered systems has enjoyed a resurgence of interest in the last decade. New concepts such as weak localization, interaction effects and Coulomb gap, have been developed for the transport properties of metals and insulators. With the fabrication of smaller and smaller samples and the routine availability of low temperatures, new physics has emerged from the studies of small devices. The new field goes under the name "mesoscopic physics" and has rapidly developed, both experimentally and theoretically. This book is designed to review the current status of the field. Most of the chapters in the book are devoted to the development of new ideas in the field. They include reviews of experimental observations of conductance fluctuations and the Aharonov-Bohm oscillations in disordered metals, theoretical and experimental work on low frequency noise in small disordered systems, transmittancy fluctuations through random barriers, and theoretical work on the distribution of fluctuation quantities such as conductance. Two chapters are not connected directly to the mesoscopic fluctuations but deal with small systems. They cover the effects of Coulomb interaction in the tunneling through the small junctions, and experimental results on ballistic transport through a perfect conductor

High temperature superconductors 16 years later where do we stand? by P. A Lee ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Prof. Patrick Lee, visiting Miller Professor, MIT explains that high Tc superconductors have been under intense study since their discovery. There is now broad agreement that many of the phenomena associated with these materials are novel and are driven by strong correlation. He reviews some of the phenomena and describes current efforts to understand them
Quantum spin liquid from drought to deluge by P. A Lee ( )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Patrick Lee, William & Emma Rogers Professor of Physics and Division Head, Atomic, Biological, Condensed Matter and Plasma Physics, M.I.T., states that the idea of anti-ferromagnetic order was initially greeted with skepticism when Louis Neel introduced it in the '30s but is now considered obvious. Indeed the search for an exception has turned up empty-handed for 30 years until recently, when a couple of promising examples have surfaced. Prof. Lee argues that if confirmed, this represents a new state of matter, called quantum spin liquid, which exhibits novel properties such as emergent fermionic excitations and gauge fields and is related the the de-confinement of a stronly coupled lattice gauge theory
In search of Majorana by P. A Lee ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Majorana fermion is a fermion which is its own anti-particle. It can be thought of as half a fermion. If it exists, it is predicted to have fascinating properties such as non-abelian statistics and can serve as the basis of fault tolerant quantum computing. However, up to now it has never been observed in Nature. Prof Patrick Lee will give an introduction to the subject and discuss recent proposals to create and detect Majorana fermions in the Laboratory
Graphene and the physics of the two-dimensional dirac spectrum by P. A Lee ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Prof Patrick A Lee from MIT discusses the electronic structure of a single-layer graphite and shows that it is an example of the massless Dirac spectrum
Quantum spin liquids and their experimental signatures by P. A Lee ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Review recent progress in identifying spin liquid candidates, emphasizing the open questions that remain, and also discuss a number of proposed new experiments such as sound attenuation, ARPES, neutron scattering and optical absorption which may help resolve these questions
Conductivity, superconductivity and the quantum world by P. A Lee ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Dirac Medalist Prof Patrick Lee from MIT visited HKUST in January 2007 and shares his research insights on quantum spin liquid and and how the phenomenon of superconductivity is related to a mathematical structure inherited in our universe
Novel phenomena at the oxide interface by P. A Lee ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
It has been known for several years that a metallic state can exist at the interface between insulating transition metal oxides. The best known example is the interface between SrTiO3 and LaAlO3. It was then discovered that the metal becomes superconducting below 0.3K. In the past year a number of groups have reported signs of ferromagnetism in this system. Prof Patrick Lee reviews the physics of the interface and propose a mechanism for the existence of ferromagnetism and how superconductivity can co-exist with it
An introduction to strong correlation physics and the phenolemnology of HiTc superconductors by P. A Lee ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The seminar introduces the subject of strong correlation physics and review the rich phenomenology of high temperature superconductivity. The focus is on experimental observations, supplemented by the introduction of theoretical concepts. Various experimental methods are explained and illustrated with examples from the HiTc literature. The material should be accessible to graduate and undergraduate students who have a basic knowledge of solid state physics at the level of Kittel's introductory textbook
