Title: Quantum transport in dual-channel InAs/InP/GaAsSb core-shell nanoscale devices and Graphene/unltrathin-Si3N4 heterostructure device

Abstract: In this talk I will present two topics linked in investigating quantum transport of Nanoheterostructures. Development of new III-V heterostructures drives engineering multifunctional devices in order to open the way to study rich physics phenomena such as Coulomb drag in low dimensions as well as the detection of indirect excitons. Recently, a strong and tunable band to band tunneling was demonstrated in InAs/GaSb core–shell NWs embedding a radial broken-gap heterojuction [1]. Therefore, implementing a thin insulator to such a system can control two closely-spaced, but electrically-separated regions hosting electrons and holes on a new core–dual shell InAs/InP/GaAsSb nanowires [2]. In this talk, our experimental findings [3] indicate a promising nanoscale system for the investigation of the coexistence of electrons and holes and of their Coulomb pairing.
In the second part of my talk, I would describe the first experimental study of graphene/Ultrathin-Si3N4 heterostructure. In this study [4], a quantitative understanding of the performance of ultrathin ?-Si3N4 as a new alternative high-k gate dielectric, with small lattice mismatch with graphene, is provided.
